The culture of our family comes from two places. There is the side that was raised in church, with modesty and morals being the main theme and living for the Lord. There is the other side that didn’t always have that theme as the front runner of their growing up, but are still nice, loving people. I belong in the side where God, church, then family is most important. I remember my grandma telling me that as a little girl while she was loading the dishwasher.
Feldman (2014) also calls these types of parents “supportive parents who show parental warmth, proactive teaching, calm discussion during disciplinary episodes, and interest and involvement in children’s peer activities” (p. 253). I bless God for my mother though she may not have been perfect and may not have always been there but for the majority of my life, ... ... middle of paper ... ...dren some of the things that I was not privy too as a child. I believe that the reason that my family to this day is so strong and no matter how many times the balance was thrown off is simply because of how well they were grounded with God and how spiritually, emotionally, and mentally developed they were. They taught each other how to make it in any situation and with that foundation my mom in particular was able to handle the many changes that were faced. This alone gives me hope and helps me to recognize my strength and how much development I have as well.
My sister and I are so close now because of what we have been through together. Many people ask me how we are so close, and even though our heartache brought us together, it doesn 't take losing a loved one to be close with your family. All it takes is love, understanding, and a little bit of time. I am asking you to, every chance you get, take that extra time to spend with your family. When noone else seems to be there for you, your family will always be there ready to help whether that means just listening to you for a while or going out to do something fun to get your mind off things, they are the ones who know you best and love you the
One of the main similarities between my family and I is probably our attitudes towards life. Both my parents and my grandparents taught me the importance of staying positive, even in negative situations. Everyone goes through rough patches in life, and that philosophy that my family taught me has helped me get through lots of bad times in my life. Also even though my family has background in being Catholic, even my traditional, old fashion grandmas have taught me to be open to other people’s differences. Differences can be different religions, cultures, and even sexuality.
Of course, providing financial assistance without asking for return is a great generosity; but beyond this are: the love; joy; peace; patience; kindness; goodness; faithfulness; gentleness; and self-control, we show to others, those are indeed Jesus Christ shows to us every moment. I learned this from a spiritual sister who led me to know God, we knew each other three years ago. She treats me like her real family: She always encourages me while I am tired of waiting for God 's signs. She always talks good things about me to others. No matter what difficult lives give us, she always has full faith in Jesus
This has been proven by the love they show me daily. My parents continue to show me loyalty, compassion and teach me lessons although they express these in different ways. When my parents got a divorce they broke their vows to each other. They were the complete opposite of what they are to me and my family, loyal. Loyalty means “showing a feeling of strong support for someone or something” (Merriam-Webster).
Ms. Wright says religion is especially important to her and her family. She tries to instill into her children the importance of not just attending church each week, but following through with what they have learned from the sermons. She stated that going to church does not make you Christian. We have to follow through with God’s teachings. She states that although many of her family members do not attend church regularly, they are extremely spiritual.
In my life, I have learned the most from my mother. My mom is always supporting me, no matter what activities I am involved with. She attends my sporting events, school events, church trips, and much more, as often as she can. When my mother comes to support me, she encourages me very much. If needed, she will tell me what I need to hear; I know she wants what’s best for me.
This is so far from the truth I love touch and I assured that I corrected her, and explained that I was busy and would love his touch when I was finished so I did not lose focus. My mom is always telling my kid’s stuff that is not true and I do not feel this is appropriate to share with children as it causes tension among family. I loved hearing about my family and learning new things that I was not aware of while completing this assignment. It also helped me bond more with both my mom and dad during the process. I was able to talk to them and learn more details about my family.
I loved listening to my mom read my favorite Bible stories. If we were on vacation, we would attend our relatives’ churches. Attending church from child years to teen years and then on to adult years has been very important. The stories that I got to listen to were wonderful, but the lessons I learned were absolutely incredible. The people and the lessons can teach a person a lot about who he or she is and who he or she can be.
