St. Therese said, “For me, prayer is a surge of the heart ; it is a simple look turned towards heaven.” Contained within that quote is the foundation from which prayer both flows out of and builds upon: humility.

Humility, seeing ourselves as God sees us, allows us to turn our gaze towards him, laying down all pride and misconceptions. It is so easy to try and apply what we know of broken human relationships oto our relationship with God: the feeling that we have seek others out in order to be loved, that we have to always appear perfect, that we have to see results in relationships for it to be worth it are just a few.

I grew up by myself until I was eight, but since no one really looked out for me when I was younger, I just feel like I have to look out for everyone else.
Mainly, society blames the parents for allowing their kids to enter this self-demeaning fake world, some claiming that the real reason behind it is that moms get to live their childhood dream of winning through their daughters. Most of the parents, when asked why they do this to their children, fall back upon the tired cliché that it promotes self-esteem (Henry A. Giroux, 2009). These mothers don 't mind spending tons of money on cosmetics, spray tans, and outfits. They can get a bit too obsessed with perfecting their children and pushing them too hard. Kerry Campbell, a mom from San Francisco , insists on shooting up her 8-year-old daughter with regular Botox injections and making her get body waxes in an attempt to turn her into a superstar one day (Julie Ryan Evans, 2011).

Before you even knew you were pregnant the genes were set in place and there was nothing you could have done to stop that extra chromosome.

This book brings to the world wisdom of Wisdom, and understanding of Understanding. Greetings beloved, in the beginning of this fascinating wonderful journey with God I was what would be considered a heathen to the religious minded folk. Nevertheless, I was always with God and God with me since birth.
