An Obscure Christian Life: My Exciting Journey with the Holy Spirit tells of the author's eye-opening introduction to how just an ordinary, obscure Christian can be used by God when he follows the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Stan was the middle child sandwiched between two brothers and two sisters, and was raised in a conservative Christian home in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He accepted Christ as his savior at a Billy Graham Crusade at age eleven. During Stan's junior year of high school, his father, a meteorologist, was transferred to Las Cruces, to work at the White Sands Proving Ground in support of the Apollo space program. He had been a gunnery sergeant in the Marine Corps during WWII. Stan, never hearing the "if" in his father's admonition, "Stanley, if you don't apply yourself, you'll never amount to a hill of beans," joined the Marine Corps to prove him wrong. After military service, Stan enrolled at New Mexico State University and majored in wildlife management. He attended a Missions Week conference where he felt a deep calling to serve the Lord as a missionary in some capacity. Recruiters from the Peace Corps came to campus, and Stan, thinking this would be an opportunity to fulfill his calling, was accepted as a volunteer. This is when his Exciting Journey with the Holy Spirit really begins. About the Author Stan W. Taft grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and now resides in Spring, Texas. Working his way up from wildlife biologist to superintendent of two of Texas' most popular state parks, he retired as a park peace officer for Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and has taken up oil painting as a hobby.
