I never knew anything about what a Worldview was, until I started reading the required material for this course. What is a Worldview? To me, a Worldview is the way we see the world through our own eyes. How we navigate through life day to day. It is what we believe to be true or reality. Professor Weinert defines it as “foundational beliefs embedded in a shared story that gives shape or direction to our individual and corporate lives, and points us towards a specific vision of the “good life”. Everyone has a Worldview. A person’s Worldview can be affected by many things: by their culture, background, traditions, their relationships with people, their experiences and life situations. These can vary from person to person. Looking back…show more content…
I don’t remember the exact date. That’s really not important to me. I do remember, I was 21 at the time. What is important, is the experience that I went through. I was at my lowest time in my life. I had turned my back on God, I had disconnected myself from my family. I had become very rebellious. I started hanging out with the “wrong” crowd. I was partying and drinking. Losing focus of my dreams and goals in life, I dropped out of school. I was wasting my life away with selfish living. I just didn’t care anymore. It wasn’t until one night, and I can remember this like it was yesterday, that I was going to find my real truth. My friends wanted to go out to a club. I really was not feeling like going out that night, but I obliged. I went out with them. I drank a little bit, danced a little bit. I was just not feeling like “myself”. I didn’t know what was wrong.

Despite a few road blocks I had to endure, I have been afforded a second chance to continue my dream of graduating from college here at Judson University. My family has supported my decision from day one. They give me the love and encouragement I need to know that I can do it. My 3 daughters are my motivators. I live for them. I want to show them that they should never give up on their dreams, no matter what obstacles they may face. I have acquired a second passion and that is finding ways to help people that are in need, particularly young women with children. That is why I am currently enrolled in the Human Services Program.
