Happy New Year 2019! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!

Due to the holidays, there were no programs posted the past two weeks. This weeks program will be the last chosen by Kim Engle.

Mining for Gold | John O’Leary

After experiencing a disfiguring / near death experience as a 9 year old child, John shares how he discovered the gold within us all. The allegory that he shares exemplifies how the human spirit can overcome huge odds to become whole and healthy. Inspirational story about resilience and journey from a traumatic moment as a child.

In 1987, John O’Leary was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing with fire and gasoline, John created a massive explosion in his home and was burned on 100% of his body. He was given one percent chance to live.
