Our Kitchen for All Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) offers a lot for us, students, in the Residence Halls. Comfortable lounges for us to study and hang out with our friends, free cable, accessible water fountains, and microwaves and mini-fridges are already provided for us. However, something valuable is missing from our Residence Halls that would have been a huge plus to living on campus. Where are our kitchens? The meal options at OLLU are great, but the food at the Cyber Café tends to get boring and bland, and the Sister Annie B's Cafeteria can get crowded with long lines to get food. Cooking is what makes food exciting and more gratifying, but without a kitchen, how will we ever learn to cook for ourselves and enjoy food? The new
Initial Leadership Assessment When initially asked what do you want to be when you grow up, prior to about sixteen years old, my response was an early childhood psychiatrist. I perceived a need in both the world and my personal life that there were many children in need of someone who would understand them, communicate with them, and advocate for their needs. I strongly agree that callings may arise out of a response to specific challenges or issues in our individual or collective lives, such as the call to early childhood psychology correlating with a traumatic personal childhood. Yet as A Sacred Voice is Calling, stresses your call story to a particular vocation may require a change of heart through personal conversion and transformation.
Since I was fifteen I have always been drawn to answering important questions, engaging in meaningful discussions, and touching lives in intentional and personal ways. My favourite thing to do is disciple; engage in authentic conversations about life, relationships, and Jesus through a mixture of counseling, mentoring, and teaching. I
Brenda Coar Page 1 Lisa Kirk Engl 1101-Composition and Rhetoric (40613 February 16, 2018 Definition of Faith DEFINITION ESSAY FOR FAITH My definition of faith is believing and trusting in the word of God. I am a true believer in faith and prayers because my life is spent on faith. Each time I wake up or lay down, I pray and ask the Lord to watch over my kids and all my loved ones. Anytime something happens bad, the outcome is good. This is the work of God because he calls the shots of my life. He is in total control of life.
I would like to see myself five to ten years from now working as an Executive Director in a Christian based non-profit. I know that I will be serving God the remainder of my professional and personal life. My main goal is to serve on a Board of Directors and eventually becoming a Board Chair person. I set high expectations for myself because of my devout Faith in God. I can accomplish what God has set forth before me.
There are many events and reasons that have influenced my decision to apply to Colorado Christian University. I currently have an associate’s degree of applied science from Garden City Community College in Garden City Kansas. I grew up in Colorado Springs, involved with New Life Church and went to The
For what is your faith if it can’t stand against rigorous and complex provocation. I look at my own faith how I can become complacent with where I am, focusing on other things instead of what truly matters. I sink back to what is comfortable and satisfying to me rather than seeking out growing and maturing my faith. It is easier to just put faith on the back burner, so it’s still cooking, but I say to myself I need to finish cooking high school first, or let me get through college first. These are excuses and dishonoring to the one who gifts me grace and mercy through every breath and thought I have.
I was raised a Christian. I attended a small Christian School in southwest Ohio from kindergarten all the way through my senior year of high school. As students, we were required to bring proof that we attended church each Sunday. We memorized Bible verses every week. We even had mini church services in school once a week. All of these activities contributed to our grade in our Bible classes, which was required every semester.
I grew up in a Christian home. I was taught to always have faith, even when the situation seemed terrible. Never did I understand what it was like to actually lean on faith in a situation until it was the only option I had.
Personal Statement The religious experience is one of the most hotly debated topics in the study of religion. What entails a religious experience? For me, the most refreshing thing about religious events is that they tend to be sporadic and individually unique, stretching from the oddly mundane to the inimitable. The sensation is different. The location is different. The state of mind is different. However, this encounter with the sacred is mentally piercing in the most fascinating, diverse ways. I can be randomly walking around school campus in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and suddenly become engrossed in all the vivid colors of the plants and conscious of the intricate details of being alive. I can be sitting among a huge crowd outside the king’s palace in Fez, Morocco, and unexpectedly become aware of the individual currents of blood flowing through my veins as I become entranced by the Whirling Dervishes. I can be standing on a beach in Gulf Shores, Alabama, staring aimlessly into the ocean, and experiencing an intense sense of longing and painful separation caused by leaving a country and people I had come to adore and love. I could be choked up in a spurt of laughter caused by a practical stranger while gazing at a 2000 year old monastery on top of a mountain in Petra, Jordan. All of these sacred experiences, fusions of good timing, emotion, and sacred space, are forever ingrained in my memory and heart. The happiness, the pain, the joy, the inability to
The topic which I have selected is faith. Faith is a complex term that we use casually in the Latter Day Saint community. Yes, it is simple, but it has a much more profound meaning than just believing. It is believing in the Son of God, and that he will
Faith is a spiritual power or ability that connects those who love the righteousness of God to the spiritual realm of existence. It makes it possible for us to comprehend and touch the spiritual things. Through faith, we understand that the Spiritual is more real than the physical. It is only through faith that we could understand the mysteries of God’s existence. Furthermore, it is through faith that we understand that the spiritual powers have created the physical entities, and due to that, what is physical must be subordinate to the
Faith and religion are an uncomfortable topic for most, a treasured topic for some, and incredibly life-changing for others. My own faith has grown immensely over the years, and it is something that has been so integral in my growth that I cannot shy away from sharing it in abundance. God has revealed many things to me, one of which is that when I stop living to glorify myself, and instead glorify Him with my actions, He will bless that.
Section II 2) Environmental influences My faith is the foundation that I ground my life on. I was raised up in a religious environment. My faith is my guidance when it comes to my ethical decision-making. The teachings of my faith allowed me to tell a part right and wrong, and
In my own life experience, I became aware of my state of sin in my early teenage years. Through the ministry of the Word at Holy Trinity Church of Murree in Pakistan, I had a clear understanding of the saving grace provided by the suffering, death and resurrection of our
