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.
The visit from Sister Lisa was very informative and interesting. She basically has the background story I would expect from a typical Sister. She was raised at a Catholic school and her life revolved around the church and school because her dad was a teacher at her school. However, Sister Lisa is anything but your typical Sister. She has always been big into sports and said that the hardest decision in becoming a Sister was giving up coaching.
Also, she is planning a huge, affordable grief retreat full of healing exercises and speakers. She truly believes God has given her a gift with words. More than likely after one of her speeches, someone will come up to her crying about how much her words impacted them. She continually inspires people, including myself, which is one of The Great Eight traits heroes tend to have (Cherry, “The Psychology of Heroism”). Ultimately, Mary has somehow turned such a daunting event in her life into a positive outcome and now helps people overcome the same event.
When normally timid women, rendered even more so by pregnancy, triumphed over the terror of death (Saxton 30). If death did occur during childbirth, the women is heavily praised for their sacrifice. When it came to being a mother, women were religious teachers to their children. She was to work as hard as she could, instilling the principles of religion in her babies and catechizing them as soon as they can speak (31). To righteous puritan mothers the path of god was a must for their children.

The Abercrombies became a five-generation Baha’i family in an unusual way. First Richard (Ricky) declared his Faith in 1960. Seeing a change in Ricky’s behavior, his father Charles and mother Lillie (students of the Bible with strong Christian backgrounds) studied the Faith and both declared in 1961. Lillie’s mother, Della Mae Ellison (Biggie) came down to ‘save’ the family and met Eulalia Bobo Taylor. Mrs. Taylor considered her strong Christian background an asset to her membership in a new religion and she used her extensive knowledge of the Bible as a means of teaching others about the Baha’i Faith.
Corrie Ten Boom was a woman unlike any other. Through the trials of the Holocaust she stood up for what she believed in and for that she was rewarded. She was put in the worst conditions possible but because of her faith, she stayed strong and was able to tell her story to many. Though I did not personally know her, I have read her book, The Hiding Place, many times. Every time I read it, I discover more about who she was in God.
Her passing was a major loss because she was the only person that really loved me she taught me how to cook, we went fishing and we always attended church due to her spiritual beliefs in the lord. Foremost, she taught me how to pray and read the bible. Lastly, we took care of family member’s children and I took care of her in reality and the family member’s children at a young age. She needed me there because she was overweight and had a considerable health issues besides her heart. According to the PowerPoint and readings of (Bowlby) Attachment theory “comes from safety & security, development in early life, usually towards a specific individual, endures throughout a large a large part of the life cycle”.
During the reading of chapter 1 by Brenda Combs I became tearful with her story of how the circumstances in her life changed by imploring help from the Lord to heal her from her addictions and homelessness. After she took her decision of staying positive, and setting up goals, and with determination that she and her son deserved more than a simple paycheck. Those thoughts were her inspiration for improvement, and working very hard in her dreams without giving up. The poem she wrote for her son inspired me to work harder and continue working with love and respect for self and others as always do and being an example for my daughter. With this article I was able to identify many of my areas that I have to work- on and also I was able to identify
I was still very young, and lost almost all connection to faith. The last, loose cable that kept me suspended was a girl my age who we now lived next door to; Her family were very devout Christians, and occasionally took me to church with them. They also encouraged my own family to send me to a faith-based summer camp along with my new friend. At Camp Imadene, I met Jesus personally for the first time. I don 't believe, at that time, I fully understood the weight of what I was learning.
I chose St. Catherine because her story was inspiring. All of her time devoted to the Holy Trinity striked me and her determination of being God’s servant. St. Catherine just seemed so interesting to learn about her story. I hope to imitate St. Catherine by helping the sick and the helpless. I also hope to copy her devotion to God so I can grow closer to God and away from
Mary Shelley was born on, August 30th 1797, to William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft (Frankenstein, front page). She was married to Percy Shelley. Two years after she married Percy, she published her very famous novel, Frankenstein. Mary Shelley, lived a life full of disappointments which impacted her ability to write deep character developments, due to her numerous miscarriages, death of child, no biological mother, and her failed marriage. Mary never got to get to know her biological mother, as she died shortly after Mary was born which left her father to care for Mary and her older sister, Fanny.
My hero is Lindsay McGhee. Lindsay is my church and small group leader who graduated from the University of Georgia and now works at the church I attend. She has changed my life completely! She has many heroic qualities but the ones that stand out the most are, she is always there for me and my small group, she is always happy and knows how to turn a sad moment into a happy one, and she has open arms for everyone. Lindsay might be one of the most influential people I have ever met!
This is saying a lot considering the Puritan people are very strict with sinners. When she was first given the letter, they told her that she would only ever be able to be forgiven by God. Now the people see her and the letter in a completely different way. Although Hester is being very kind to others, she feels different about the letter than the others do.
I played flute for 5 years and violin for 2 years. I want to learn from this saint because she committed her life to the Lord and I would like to devote more of my life to Him. I want to be more close to God and pray more often like she did in her life. In conclusion, Saint Cecilia has done much for her religion to show that she is a saint worthy of imitation. Although she already came from a wealthy family, she was still generous and giving to those in need.
