Francis was always happy and was a natural born leader, everyone loved him. He lived easily with wealth from his father. He partied a lot and lived with sin in his young adult days. Francis turned his life around and became more devoted to prayer and building a relationship with God. Soon after this he was preaching and being a good model of holiness. He had a tremendous love for animals and nature. Evrnually he became blind, but this only made his faith stronger.
