Faith, Humour & Living Every Day Like it’s your Last

Kirsten Macdonald has lived with the knowledge that she could die any day, at any moment… She has an inoperable brain aneurism.

I met her as the Founder and Chief Editor of Ponderings Magazine, and knew nothing about her bewildering story. When I saw Kirsten across the room of business owners and professionals, I just knew: “Wow. I need to meet her.” And I am so very, very glad I introduced myself.

Join us for a conversation spanning the seldom-addressed and yet all-pervasive, from faith to ‘God’ and humour during hardship, and for Kirsten’s profound knowledge on how to live every day like it’s your last.

This is a must-listen.
