At the time I wasn’t really old enough to take in and appreciate the church for what they were, instead I would just attend these church 's because the people I was with wanted to go. I attended Cedar Creek Church because I was told that It was a fun and different from traditional churches. When I sat down and thought about church 's I could go to for this assignment Cedar Creek was one of the first ones that came to mind. I was told Cedar Creek was a fun environment an I know a few people that attend Cedar Creek so I didn’t feel like a stranger or an outsider, which was one of my fears going into this assignment. The Church service its
My favorite part of being a counselor was getting to know the campers and being the best counselor to them. I have attended the JCC since I was in Kindergarten, I always wanted to be in Habimah and when I got the chance, I never wanted to leave. Unfortunately, there comes a point when you have to graduate and move on. My way of moving on was becoming a counselor and giving back to the campers what was always given to me. This summer really impacted me as a person because seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces, taught me that community service does change this world for the
“The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.” Ray L. Wilber’s statement is one I came to realize after becoming a summer camp counselor for girls ages seven to twelve. Only in my first few days as a counselor, my eyes were forced open to see the greatness inside each of my campers. For some children these gifts only need nurtured; others require assistance in uncovering their distinction. Here in lies my passion: to convince each child I meet of his or her infinite potential. Each child contains a gift vital to the well-being of the surrounding world.
In the book, Morrie also said, “Forgive yourself before you die. Then forgive others” because you don’t know when you will see them for the last time (Albom 164). Morrie has an interesting viewpoint when it comes to forgiveness. I agree that it is important to forgive people, even though you are allowed to take your time with it. There have been instances where I found it difficult to forgive people that hurt me for a while, but I worked continuously towards pardoning them.
Throughout a person’s life they will experience pain, and hurt, however, the way people handle these situations vary. As a social worker I will not be able to solve the problems of my clients but I will have the opportunity to help. Being a Christian social worker will allow me to turn to the Bible, and to prayer when I need direction and guidance in order to help my
Summary As I continue preparing to become a more knowledgeable counselor it is important for me to take a look at the many different cultures that a professional may encounter in multicultural counseling. I must admit that I did not even know we had multicultural counseling theories. I had studied personality theories but never models underlying multicultural counseling. I know that one of the most important characteristic of a successful counselor is awareness and being able to create valuable experiences that can help individuals overcome adverse situations. My current position as Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor deals with finding employment for clients that are blind or visually impaired and, the multicultural counseling theories that
Every day I try to make myself disposable to others in that same way, rather its taking time out to go to the park with my daughter or reading her a story before she goes to bed. Or rather its taking the time to be patient with my coworkers and understand their opinions and concerns in order to let them know that they are a valued member of our team overall. I have learned to live my life in a way to make others feel how I want to feel. It brings me great pride to see my daughter also doing these things at a young age. Taking time out to volunteer in the community and sacrifice for those in greater need than
I knew I was not receiving anything in return, but I did it anyway because it made me feel great for helping to make a place more homelike for everyone. I also volunteered at a food pantry, and this was my all time favorite thing to do, for I would not be receiving anything, but I was helping to give back to people who needed it. While volunteering it also gave me a chance to be a leader, and have to take charge of a big role to make sure we did things perfectly. One day I was asked to be in charge of decorating a church for a special event. I gathered a couple of people and showed them the ideas I had for decorating, but also heard their ideas.
Patelle Fong 11R04S Mentor Application 1. Why do you want to be a mentor and what would the role involve? I think that being a mentor would be benefitting to me because I would like to help more people, and I want to help others because I can sometimes tell whether or not another person is upset or feeling a certain way, even though I never asked them what was happening because I did not have the confidence to. I think that being a mentor would help me gain more confidence in myself to help others who may be needing help, as it is important that everyone at school should be able to feel safe here, not secluded but like they belong in the KGV community, as well as develop my own communication skills. I believe that I am able to help others with certain issues as I have gone through many experiences from being at this school for several years now, and I know how to deal with different problems others may be facing now.
In the beginning of Purple Hibiscus, Kambili was very quiet and secretive. Then she starts to come out of her shell and began to express her opinions more. But at the end of the book, Kambili shows desperation for Father Amadi and shockness from the events that took place. Through Purple Hibiscus, Adichie teaches the world having the right people who support will help you change for the better and overcome obstacles. This is relevant in today’s society because most kids don’t have the right influence in their household so they need the extra help from others to lead them the way.
English was not my second language, but I did know what it was like to learn a language and how frustrating it could be. Because of this, I want to be as much help to them as possible. Tenorio says, “It is not the awareness of racial and cultural differences that leads to prejudice and racism, but how people respond to these differences” (p. 26). Every student is different. It is up to me and every other future teacher out there to always be available to their students as well as to be open minded and
Jonathan Kozol’s book explores the impoverished community of Mott Haven. The children interviewed in the community have had little exposure to the world outside of the South Bronx. Without anything to compare their situation to, they tend to accept and attempt to live out their childhood, playing and making new friends in the direst of circumstances. The children interviewed often discussed their religious views and their relationship with God. Children in privileged communities tend to look to their parents to help them when they are in trouble or feel confident their parents will be able to fix any situation.
Emery White explained that many seekers know what they need to satisfy the spiritual dimension of their lives, but they never enter into an active search mode. He suggested that perhaps by examining the benefits of being a seeker, they can begin to do something about it. Afterward, the author lists and explains four benefits of being an active seeker: (1) You pay attention to your spiritual life. You remember that the whole aim of your search is to fill that “God-shaped” void in your life — nothing else will do. (2) Seeking helps you keep an open mind.
Dear Mrs.Schroff, After reading your book The Invisible thread I felt inspired to help a person in need. Your book made me take another look at life and think what could I do to help the people around me? What you did for Maurice was inspirational. You helped a kid you barely knew and you were able to provide and to care for a child almost like he was your own. Your book also shows that the idioms we never payed attention to as children really is the foundation and is the fundamental truth about life.
Not only have I been a leader at work, but I have also been a teacher at my church every summer and during vacation Bible school. It is always fun to be around children and teach them about the words of God. if I am indeed inducted into national honor Society I plan to take on more leadership roles to improve the community. I want to be the person that people look up to and say goodbyes from. I hope to be able to help others in anyway shape or form I possibly can and inspire others the same way that others before, had inspired me.
