What to Expect
A dynamic and funny delivery of a serious message with great impact on the audience.
Charismatic and articulated, funny and precise, loud and clear, engaging and approachable.
Because I am a director/actor I deliver with the skill set of an actor and with the expectations of a director.
Originally from Romania and growing up under tough conditions in communism, Florin can say that he lived on both sides of the wall. After the Revolution in 1989 he, and the entire Romanian people, had to adapt to capitalism and find a career. Because of his personality, Florin was attracted by the entertainment industry and in particular by acting and film making.
Today, after 20 years in the industry, Florin is continuing his career on the other side of the planet, on the North American continent, precisely in Canada and extended his writing skills from film scripts and commercial copy-writing to becoming a published author.

- Do you think God's right to be jealous sometimes?
It's an open question. Me, personal... I think I answered it.
Love Is... not just hugs and kisses.
A father shows love not just by hugging and kissing his children, by playing and spending time with them, by giving them toys and games, but by teaching them to discern good from evil, by teaching them and sharing his experience and wisdom, by discipline them and doing everything in his power to guide his children and help them on the long run to become good parents at their time.
You see... it's not enough to be just a father but to be a good father and a good father inspires trust in his children. Whenever a good father embraces his children, his children feel peace, love, kindness and they feel secure, that they are protected and their father is there for them no matter what.
You Can Do It
A lot of times our children, because they don't know their strength, they don't know their capacity, they are afraid of doing a lot of things because they don't know they can do them. But us, as good fathers and as good parents, we know that they have the potential to accomplish different things. And because of that, it's not bad to push them a little bit, to explain to them that they are prepared and they can do it.
What's the best way to give a present to a child? Come on, think a little bit. Think of what was the best way you got a gift when you were a child. Think how it felt, think how you expressed your excitement and then think how would've you reacted if the gift was just handed to you. So, what was the best way? Exactly! Surprise them!
So, that's what a good father does: love all his children, with no favorites,
with the same strength, but in different ways.
I was telling some people: "hug me now because if I die tomorrow, you'll be sorry" and they were laughing... but they didn't know how much truth is in that. And I think it's sad that people would give up the raw, embedded love that we have in us since we're stepping into this world because a group of people are acting different and are stealing the joy of sharing the true love.
Ask And You Shall Receive
It's so simple and amazing. Just careful on how you ask and what you ask for.
Patience - Second Coming
We all know that everyone is waiting for the second coming, that everyone would love to see Jesus and God, to be right there in front of them.
But when is He going to be back?
It sounds so complicated, but it's so simple. For us it's hard to understand it. Remember, we are his children. We are anxious or afraid, but we would love to see that prophecy coming through.
If you'd listen obedient, without questioning, with faith, your life would've been a lot easier.
You deliver your promises in your timing, like a good father that you are.
How do you think God pulls back, letting us struggle in our own stubbornness?
Is that wrong? No, it's not.
What's wrong is that attitude we have.
Patience - Cry Baby
Did you ever wonder how your behavior would change if you’d add a little patience in the mix? How your reactions would look like, how the entire situations would change and in what directions? I know you wished to have the understanding before anything happen, but you know: everything happens for a reason… And most of the time… we don’t know the reason till later.
Do your children ask if you have enough money for milk? No, they don't... because they know you're providing.
Quit complaining with every step you take. At the end of every task there is a reward. Every single time.
So, this is how we, the human beings, are wired. We, from babies to Presidents, don't like to listen to warnings or advice. But we can change.
Every time when someone does something wrong, in the moment they think of doing it, before they do it, they know is wrong.
They set boundaries and they limit behaviors that, uncontrolled, they can become a life style that will lead the child on the wrong path.
Children, a lot of times, take the place of your old plans and visions.
How would you feel if your children treated you like a sucker: used you and dumped you? I bet you wouldn't like it.
A lot of the good opportunities that we should take are right under our noses, but we're too busy looking at our crumbs.
Is one of the most overwhelming feelings you'll have in your life and you'll experience it!
Parents treat the teens like children, teens wanting to be treated like adults.
There's the conflict and the separation. What's the solution?
He will let you see how it feels to be deserted and to understand that it is good to keep close and in contact at all times.
The good parents and the good fathers will never let their children know that feeling.
When we get sick it feels like we’ve grown old another fifty years in ten minutes. And then is when we change our perspective on life and our relationships.
Journey of Life
The most precious gift God gave us is life and today we're just zooming by it running after money and titles.
We all want to keep living, even if it is another kind of life form. A little analogy: when you drive a car and you have an accident or it just gives up, you get out of the car and go get another one and move on.
Dedication: Dear Future Fathers
This segment is my dedication to you, my plead for you to read and enjoy the book, to get the information in and at least think of applying it. This book is for all the future father from around the world and when I'm saying that I am talking about you, the ones from the brink of becoming a teenager till the ones that are waiting anxiously in the delivery room to hear your first baby's cry.
If you're a teen and you are confused, let me tell you this: we all were confused at that stage and it's something normal... some of us are still confused, so don't disarm and don't panic because everything will be fine in the end. I know a lot of people tell you to just get over it or to man up. I know. The thing that they don't understand is that you are doing just that... it's just that you don't really know how, so you are trying different things. Why am I writing to you? It's because I feel that this book is especially dedicated to you. I feel that because YOU are the future of this human kind, you are the future of this society; you are the ones that will be leaders, from your families to your countries. I know that at this moment you don't see your destiny, you don't see your purpose and even a reason why you should be sticking around...
But I am telling you: YOU HAVE A PURPOSE.
You were born with a purpose, the most important of all.
And that's not of you becoming a genius scientist or a doctor or an astronaut, no... it's to become and be a good father. We, the men, were design to lead and guide, to gain wisdom and to share it with the future generations, we were design to be fathers just like the women are designed to be mothers. Maybe you notice that I use "fathers" instead of any other words to define the role which is a duty and a privilege. That's because to be a father doesn't mean only to make a baby, to participate in the conception, but to be there all the way from the first moment you find out that you will have a child. THAT will make you a father. And from there, having the free will, you'll be able to become a good father that will be sticking around, provide, love your spouse and your future generation, your extension. The easiest way to become a good father is to mirror Our Father, God. It is the easiest way! I am telling you: read this book and let's talk in about 20 years. By that time you'll be an accomplished man and I will be an old grandpa... but I will still love to talk to you about your journey of being a father and becoming a good one.
And this is my final thought and the last page of the book:
A little hope note
I do hope that you reached to this page and you did enjoy the book.
As I said, it came from a moment of inspiration and, in the creation
process, I just ridden the wave that brought me to this finished
product. I know it's not perfect and I know I might not be right in
everything I say in here, but I hope that I pulled wide open the
curtains of the dark room you're in right now and that the sunlight is
shining warmly on your face producing a big wide smile putting you
in another stance with more hope and more understanding in what a
great position you are and how you are, above any earthly adversity,
understanding your Our Father, God.
