An Upbeat Kind of Life is my autobiography.

If you find it interesting or you want to know more, you can access and/or download many of the resources I've made over decades. They are all found on my profile page here in kiwiconnexion. They include the So-me music stories for Juniors: the album with the North Shore Youth Choir: Songs of a Crazy Kingdom; Gospel—the sermon on the mount for young people today; and more besides.
I would be delighted if you downloaded and used them, and passed the links on to others. Occasionally, on some pages in An Upbeat Kind of LIfe, there are links to these resources.
