Personal Narrative: The Person I Am

Improved Essays
Since I can remember, I have had numerous people guide me and help me become the person I am today. Their guidance has shown me different values and morals that I still live by. I was always told to value the family and friends I have. They have all left lasting impressions on me as I grew. I also live by my faith and let God show me the way. Most importantly, I was taught to never give up on my dreams and constantly fight for what I want and live my life. I live by what I think is right and what I have grown up to know. I live my own life in the way I want to live that makes me happy to be who I am. Many of the values I live by come from my schooling at Holy Cross growing up. When I went to Holy Cross, they taught me to keep God in my …show more content…
I had some of the best education right in front of me. I had teachers who cared so much for the other students and me. They wanted to show us the way to a holy life by telling us of God and his works. Through the gospel and other readings, we were given ways to live as Christ did when He was on Earth. However, we never truly understood every lesson and reading that was given to us, we still accepted it. When I was there, I was able to express my voice through my religion. The way I could speak out about God and His ways created who I am. Because of being raised in that environment I am not afraid to speak out for what I think is right. I am not afraid to stand up for my religion and defend it when I need to. Learning and living in God’s light created the strong, independent …show more content…
Many of them went to school with me throughout my years at Holy Cross. They all shared the same beliefs as me and helped me learn and grown as a devoted catholic. For nine years, they were there to help me through the good times and bad in my life. When we all went to Holy Cross, I was able to learn about my faith and how to relate it to my life in everyday situations. As I got older and gained new friends, who also share many of the same values as I have. My values on religion, family, and self-respect were some of the things I could talk about and cherish with them every day. Though I may not be as close as I once was to my Holy Cross class, I know that if I need someone to talk to about my faith and I am in need of advice on anything I have them at my side. Knowing that they are there for me, I feel as if I can act like them by being a trusting person. Anyone of my friends or acquaintances is always welcomed to talk to me if they ever need it. I am never one to judge for an action or mistake because I accept that mistakes happen. We are all human and I do not see a reason to be so upset for being

    “ (p. 150) By loving God with everything that I have within me, I am allowing myself to teach others about the love of God while also learning for myself just how important and powerful that His love is within my life.

    Damontez, “I can apply what I learned from this project in my everyday life. I learned how to come together as complete strangers but men of Christ and pray for one another.

I felt that I had a solid grip on the fundamental teachings of the Bible and what it would mean to spend the rest of my life as a Jehovah's Witness. I knew how seriously this decision was meant to be taken, but from that time forward, I also knew that in my heart I believed what I was learning and I wanted to reaffirm my faith in this important…
