From early age, women were push aside just because they were women. They were softer and not as stronger as men. A lot of people looked at them as just mothers or wives and nothing more. Their job was to take care of the house, kids, help their mothers, and other chores like that. Any time that they start to talk, about their right, about inequality, men shut them.
... me in a unique position at Central in being married for several years and so my husband and I had the opportunity to help encourage many couples in their faithfulness while dating and many of those individuals are now married and have healthy relationships. Perhaps my favorite individual at Central whom God placed in my life to be an encouragement to exercise and strengthen their faith was Jmichael Greenwood. Jmichael faced mental, physical, and financial struggles. Many nights he spent in our home pouring out his heart and God used both my husband and I to pray and stand with him. Last May, my husband got the opportunity to help Jmichael walk across the stage to receive his diploma. God reminded me in that moment that discipleship is about walking alongside individuals helping them in their spiritual journey. This is what I had the privilege of doing with Jmichael.
Although not by choice, after seventeen years of marriage, we decided to divorce. It was the right decision, but I felt guilt over the further damage it would cause to my children. I had suffered a loss comparable to death, how would I go on and how would we survive (Sakraida, 2005)? I moved to Alabama to be with my parents, as I needed their support.

It means the glory came from the strong faith that they kept. Nowadays, the world is sinful and wicked. However, there is still a chance to a variety of faith in Christ. Even though the world is changing fast and lost a lot of things, if people understand the Baptism of Baptist, they can make a successful life in the Crist who died instead of us. Through the study, I realized that proclamation of the gospel has the power to heal my broken heart through frustrated my vision about baptism. When I proclaim His glory with does Baptism, I should feel that God still works for me. In fact, I have no power to handle my problems or adversities, but the power of the proclamation of the Gospel is always strong and sure for me.
I was in third grade when my parents went through an ugly, painful divorce. I was challenged with the burden of taking sides and processing my emotions of anger, sadness, and pain. It was during this time period that I started questioning why God was letting all of this happen. I prayed every day and asked God to help me overcome adversity and explain why things had to be the way they were. For the first time in my life, I felt angry towards God and abandoned. Little did I know that this was merely a test of how strong my faith was in myself and in God.
I an thankful to the Lord for providing me a great Christian education in middle schools where we learn to be spiritual and understand the teachings and the Lord through the Bible. I appreciate Him in giving me the oppurtunity to apply to a wonderful cathlolic institution to further my growth.
American Grace, written by Robert Putnam and David Campbell, discusses the many changes and challenges that religion has had in the United States since the early 1960s. It discusses the outcomes of the results of two specific major surveys that were conducted; looking into public life and the effect religion has had on the every day person. It has also looked into the sociological causes for the changes that have occurred. The United States has been known to be a religiously diverse nation that has seen high levels of tolerance of many religions that have been consistent as well as newer ones. According to Putnam and Campbell, three major religious changes occurred in the United States beginning in the 1960s. Prior to these changes, America
