I was 22 when I moved out of home to become independent. If I could turn back time, I would have stayed longer for various reasons... but shouda's, coulda's and woulda's can't help me now so I forgive myself instead. It made me stronger and wiser so what's to regret now? But getting back on track... about a year later after I had moved into my own unit (around 1992) I changed from Catholic to BAC and I thank Him every day for calling me into His family.
So one day somebody showed me a leaflet with the name 'Fire Fighters for Christ' on it. It had a list of tapes (uuggh - tapes!) of Christian speakers, authors and testimonials... and a section to write my name and address to order any of the tapes free of charge. So I did. I must have ordered just about all of them in the span of about a year and they ended up replacing listening to music - they were that interesting and fantastic to listen to!
As the years rolled by, most of the tapes were passed onto to friends and today I only have the ones that I love the very most, and they are by Florence Littauer; author, speaker and a true comedian. About 10 years ago Florence came to Perth for a one day seminar at Observation City, so a friend and I went to see her. $80 got me a laugh a minute rolled in with good lessons that day and it was money well spent. There's a lot of info out there about Florence and this is just one page to get you started... Her books.
A few days ago I was searching online to see if I could still order the tapes and I came across THIS which let's you listen to them online, how great is that? And who listens to tapes now anyway? LOL.
A change of pace; loving my Easter Cacti!
