At nine years old, John O'Leary was involved in a horrific incident and was given only a one percent change to survive.
Today, nearly three decades later, he travels the world teaching others how to truly live. In this presentation, John draws on his life's experience to intimately illustrate how God often uses our greatest challenges to positively transform our lives.
My kids and I LOVED this CD because it was impactful and gave us the opportunity to define the word FAITH. John not only defines faith and lovevin his talk, but also gives examples of them. Now my 5 year old now can repeat the definition of faith, and I as a mother try to explain that definition in our every day lives. John's talk is helping me teach my kids the Catholic faith and love. Thank you!
I enjoyed how the personal stories of many individuals played a role in effecting his life/survival. By their example of love, he was able to overcome this tragedy. It's very inspirational for how we can help others and face our own crosses in life.
My nephew Matt Thompson's house blew up last Sunday in Sault Ste Marie Michigan. He has 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 40 percent of his body. He has facial, mouth, nose and throat burns. He is supposed to have surgery on his hands, feet, arms and legs either tomorrow or Saturday. He was mercy flown to the Burn Center in Ann Arbor Michigan. He will probably be there at least three months. The CD was an encouragement hearing about someone else going through recovery from severe burns. The CD was loaned to us by our neighbor after we shared our prayer request with them.
