In the past, I have created the habit to ask “What would Jesus do?” or strike up a conversation with god about a difficulty that I have had in life. I pray in church with others and sometimes myself. But rarely do I set aside specific timeframes for private meditation in God’s presence. I have done this in the past and found it highly rewarding but I have since fallen out of the habit due to College’s busy schedule. Nevertheless, I feel that my life would earn a great deal of balance if I began to really sink down into a private prayer life.
Even after finish reading the book, I still do not understand what it is about. I can only understand after reading the short notebook version of this book. In my opinion, this is actually a good book but it would be better if it was written in dialogues or paragraphs. I think I would definitely recommend this book to my friends because through this book, we do not only receive more knowledge in Christianity, but also gain more understanding and get to know many famous ancient people and the bad things they commit when they are alive. Whether it is important or not, it is still better to know more than knowing less.
Although I was able to pass the class, and the passing grade on my AP test meant I got my grade boosted to an ‘A’ automatically, the failure I felt in the first couple of months was unlike anything I had experienced at that point. If I had not been desperate to find a better way to study, I wouldn’t have discovered that music soundtrack, and I might never have discovered Sierra Boggess and her powerful quotes. Even though I wasn’t happy at the time with my abysmal test and quiz scores, I’m glad I was able to learn this lesson that I am already enough, as it has changed my entire outlook on life so much. Now the next time I’m disappointed with a test score, or angry with myself for messing something up, I will be able to remind myself that I am always
This book is written very simply and is easy to follow. In a way, it is un-teaching of sorts. This book depicts many of the decisions that we make, in particular, ones that are mundane, that have kept us from being our best selves and explains why these decisions are wrong. It also enlightens the reader (and writer) on how to shift behaviors to decrease fear
Plus, the narration of Jed, I like how he’s knows the facts but still wonders about if it is really true or not and that he’s the only one who feels different about the situation. Which in my opinion makes it more interesting. These are some of the reasons why I like the book and reasons why you should read the book sometime in the
Dubose, Mayella Ewell, Dill, Calpurnia and some others were all judged in their own way. Some not so much as others, but you could still find hints of judgments on these people in the book. It’s just people judge to often in life instead of learning who the person actually is. A lesson on how to not judge could change the way you look and treat a person, if you had the manners and respect to do so. “If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks.
I enjoyed listening to the choir, because all though I enjoy the contemporary music that is played at my church with a band, it was nice to just enjoy some quiet and calming music. However, the whole mass service made me feel highly uncomfortable. My initial exposure to the mass was walking into the room and having it be dead silent. There was no fellowship taking place, which made me feel even more out of place. It was not as inviting as other churched I have attended, but I could really see the structure and formality of it throughout the service.

In this quote you can see how Atticus is being very aggressive in this case because he is trying to get the
We do not know how much time we have so we need to witness to others whenever we get the chance. VI. Conclusion It is important to have a solid biblical worldview. This means that your worldview needs to have a strong foundation in the word of God. Your witness for God is more effective when you know what you believe and can back it up with scripture.
We had a new coach that year and a lot of talent. Our new coach worked our butts off, harder than any other 8 man team in the state. This was difficult for all of us but we later learned that hard work really pays off. My team got a new coach my sophomore year. After we missed the playoffs my freshman year, I remember my team being called into my coach’s office.
