On the other hand, Sister Leopolda, a Christian nun, does not know about the Native Americans’ religion, either. She regards the god in the Native Americans’ religion as “the Dark One” (Erdrich 4) and insists he is going to hurt Marie, so she always holds an oak pole to catch him.

One of the important life lessons she included was to "never judge a book by its cover". This was one of the life lessons because Juli thought Bryce was amazing and everything she dreamed of but when she really saw who Bryce was later in the book she didn’t like him one bit. When Bryce was trying to apologize Juli always avoided him. At the end of the book, it even says “Maybe it’s time to meet him in the right lighting.” Which presses the idea even more of the life lesson.
When Sarah lost her dreams of being a lawyer as well as her later desires to become a wife, she felt that the only power she held was with prayer (Kidd). We are all more like this than we care to realize. Even though we may realize there is something wrong with the world, we stand back and hope for the best. We do this by prayer, or by social media’s ‘like if you wish for world peace,’ or by simply complaining to our peers about the tragedies in our time. These are not bad things to do, but they become decidedly unhelpful when we choose to not take further action.
Genevieve was known for praying, fasting constantly and dedicating herself to God from a young age. Her acts of charity saved many lives.

I want to set aside more time for praying, and give more to others.

For instance, after coming here she has learnt from her Indian roommate that she cannot eat beef and from me, she has learnt that I do not eat pork or any meat that is not Halal. Aya expected much from the class but it hasn’t lived up to her expectations. In International Studies, she would like to learn more about the US but also about other countries to gain international knowledge and exposure.
This can influence a woman in the Christian faith to feel as if she is less than a man. In doing this, Christianity is showing that women have less power than a man, due to the fact that she is not pure. Dianna Anderson is a Christian woman who talks about how she had tried to keep her purity. “Losing my virginity outside of a marriage relationship taught me how to be a better person and a better Christian.” (Anderson) Dianna stated in her article What Losing My Virginity Taught Me About Faith.
A specific devotion of St. Catherine is her love of Jesus and the Holy Trinity. She always believed in Jesus and had faith that he had a plan. Catherine prayed to the Holy Trinity all the time and mostly prayed for others. She even tended to Lepers and others that were sick because God told her to.

Presents!” She also gives us a moment of hope at the end when she reassures Peter that everything will be okay.

She helped so many people with her school and the Sisters of Charity. My goal in life is to help people and to touch their lives, which is what Mother Seton did. I believe that I can look to Elizabeth Ann Seton when I am going through a rough time. I can remember her story and it will give me strength to know that God is there and He will help me through it. Elizabeth Ann Seton lived a life of holiness and everyone around her could tell that.
Dean demonstrates how in the pragmatic move Part Three of her book, “Cultivating Consequential Faith” by exploring the broad sets of practices that help congregations cultivate mature faith in young people. She introduces her pragmatic prescriptions with a provocative story.
