This paper is one of the most difficult for me to write. The reason for this is because I don’t like thinking about my life before Christ for many different reasons. Also I am not someone how likes to talk about myself. This is because of what I consider my two biggest weaknesses. One is that I suffer from agoraphobia and the second is because I have severe depression that I am treated for both with medication and counseling. My biggest strength is that I trust God to protect me and teach me along this journey. Through that strength I am learning to love people no matter how scared I am of them. My life map shows many hills and valleys as I am sure everyone else’s does. The one thing that I keep hearing in my spirit over and over again is something my husband said years ago. He was asked to give his testimony and when he was thinking about it he said that he had to share it because it was not his only but it was God’s to use as he seen fit so here is mine all wrapped up in this Life Mapping.

She has large blocks of time that she does not remember anything about and apparently I was conceived during one of those episodes. On top of that disorder my mother has always had severe health issues and was unable to raise me in turn I was given to my Great Grandmother, Myrtle, who was born in 1917 to raise which means there was a generation gap to say the least but she did the best she could. She was married to my Great Grandfather who was an alcoholic and was retired from the Navy he did not work. To make ends meet she worked all the time especially holidays and weekends so that she ...

...ld be any different?” When I got home that night I looked at Bobby and said, “You know that we are supposed to be doing this together?” he did not even hesitate when he said yeah, I know. I just don’t know where to start. Now we are both on the journey God has called us on.
We are not completely sure where God is calling us after this part of the journey is completed but we know that He is faithful and He will show us. I feel that our ministry will have to do something with the homeless. Could that be helping to add that kind of ministry to a church? Could that be to serve in the streets helping them? I am not sure I just know that God really has the homeless on my heart. I am just holding on to the promise that God will never leave me and that He will lead me in the way I should go. I guess you could say that my faith in Him and His guidance is my biggest strength.

- the “the most difficult thing for me.” for Sarah who has stayed for one and a half year in the States. Improving English is one of the goals of many participants. Several participants shared their opinion on this “I must improve English.” (David). “I think language is the most important thing.” (John) Unfortunately, most participants are working in a lab setting that English is not the communication language and therefore have little chance to practice English in a daily base. Todd told us: “I work in a lab that all lab members are speaking Chinese and have not much chance to practice English.” John also had the same problem “I interact with all Chinese people here in the lab and have few c...

- The most difficult situation I had to face was during my clinical rotations, when I was asked to explain to a patient the course of her disease and that she only had a few more days to live. The patient was diagnosed with an extremely malignant cancer known as osteosarcoma that had spread to most of her organs. I have never been in a situation like the one I was in and did not even know how to introduce the topic. I guess it is fair to say that I was going to encounter such a scenario one day or another....

- Junior year has been one of the most difficult for me especially in the math department. This is the first year I have ever gotten a really low grade on a math test consistently and it came as a shock and surprise. Getting these and scores in the first semester extremely motivated me to try harder in the second. I had always been relatively good at math but seeing how far my ability in precalculus was digressing inspired me to work harder in my academics.

- Reading is one of the most difficult and important forms of learning. While we often think of reading as one thing, our brains are actually engaging in a number of tasks simultaneously each time we sit down with a book.

These five components work together to create the task of reading. As children learn to read they must develop skills in all five of these areas in order to become successful readers....

- John Steinbeck stated that “Learning to read is probably the most difficult and revolutionary thing that happens to the human brain, and if you don 't believe that, watch an illiterate adult try to do it.” (142). The first time a child really understands the concept of reading it becomes an introduction to a whole new world. When one thinks of literacy the first thing one thinks of is the ability to be able to read and write. But literacy is much more than that, to me literacy is the key to all forms of knowledge as being literate opens up the doors to all forms of learning and continued learning....
