Hester Prynne now starts to live a non-social life and works from home by illustrating her broidery talent into works and clothing that she can sell. Her life suddenly turns to be lonely and almost completely miserable. Nevertheless, that all begins to change with the birth of her daughter. Hester’s gem is in the body of the tiny, little infant: “But she named the daughter ‘Pearl’, as being of great price—purchased with all she had—her mother’s only treasure!” (Hawthorne 41). The sad woman, Hester, commences to watch her delightful child grow each day; and each day she grows more beautiful, more intelligent than the last (Hawthorne 41).
Jessie Mueller delivers the role of Jenna beautifully and accurately. Her southern accent is on point and as her pregnancy furthers throughout the course of the show, it’s hard to believe that there isn’t a real pregnant belly below her dress. Jenna’s co-workers at the diner, Dawn and Becky, portrayed by Caitlin Houlahan and Charity Angel Dawson, respectively have subplots that develop too. Dawn learns to come out of her shell and find love. Her arc is often the comedic relief as she and her eventual husband are quirky and overly dramatic.

So, Jill is a dynamic character because at the start of the story, she needs everything to be perfect, but by the end of the story, Jill realizes that she is happy with who she is and that nothing will ever be perfect.

They both stand apart from the other women working at Sterling Cooper in that they are both very bright and very ambitious, for instance, when Peggy sees some of the women on staff crying in the washroom and decides to be strong and not do the

The Refuge of Loneliness “If you think love will drive you mad, try loneliness.” (Xavier). Although love may blind an individual, loneliness will transform them into weaker versions of themselves, in which they take disputatious actions. In John Steinbeck’s novella, Of Mice and Men, the effects of being disregarded by others is exemplified through Curley’s Wife’s actions. In this society, Curley’s Wife is heavily neglected by those around her, which is also proven through the lack of her legitimate name. Therefore, she goes out of her way in order to meet her needs and desires, but eventually leads to her death.
Philippians 2:12-14 speaks about this spiritual co-operation between us and God, “Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Do everything without complaining or arguing.” I love this scripture as it gives each of us some clear principles for living in Christ. You work out your own salvation. As salvation is a work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and by obedience we work it out or live it out! It is a responsibility placed upon each believer to decide to obey God’s word and live out this great salvation worked in us by Christ.
