LIFE IGNITED To Chris, Life Ignited is the willingness to reflect on one’s uniqueness in this world – one's gifts, talents, passions and interests – your personal WHY and WAY of engaging the world that is unique to you. From that clarity comes the desire to be and live different – taking on life as an adventurer versus a tourist. Taking risks, being vulnerable and daring greatly to impact community.
