I didn’t mind as long as I was going. My beliefs are strong about God. A lot of my beliefs are from my dad’s parents. My grandmother always told me that I had to go to church if I ever wanted to get married in a Catholic church. She said you can’t fake your way through it.
Paul resides within his nuclear family's household, while attending school at HSU. Here his family largely supported by his father who commutes daily to earn wages. The home is ran much like a Matriachy where the mother decides on a majority of whats being done, although the father controls most of the assets financially, the house is ran and monitored by the mother. Upon further questioning as to why that is, the relationship between his mother and her parents was analyzed. The grandmother having many children monitored and directed the family unit.

At the age of 14 Rockefeller and his family moved to Ohio, Cleveland. Starting out in his young days, Rockefeller’s first job was that of a bookkeeper at the age of 16 with a pay of four dollars per week. Even though Rockefeller could have gotten a better job but he said that he only worked as a bookkeeper to gain “business experience.” Along with his work, he also attended Church regularly, and the main reason for this was because his mother Eliza, raised her five children including John just like how she was; in a religious, disciplined and frugal manner. (p.43-48, Sanford) We all know that with fame come loads of controversies, defamation and allegations. Rockefeller was no different.
For some people my age, it was hard for them to want to go to church and Sunday school. It was never a problem for me. I always really enjoyed learning about God and deepening my spiritual understanding. I am here today a 19 year old Confirmed Catholic, the only one out of my immediate family. I made the choice on my own and will always stick by it and be glad and grateful that I did.
I grew up in a family some would say resembles the stereotypical family. My mom and dad got married young, had two girls, my mom stayed home most of the time to take care of the kids, my dad worked throughout the week, we always had dinner together, and on weekends we would all spend the day together. But we were definitely far from the “model family.” My mom eventually got a job to help pay the bills, my dad would lose his job and be out of work for months before

Christians are often encouraged to love one another in a non-sexual way. This type of love is called ‘agape’. As there are different denominations, there are different views on sexual relations before marriage.
All of which are the traditional housework that a women typically does. And her boyfriend fixes anything that needs to be repaired around the house, does the yard work, and any manual labor that is needed. Women are seen as the caregivers and men are the strong handymen of the house, the protectors. Although, when it comes to taking care of their daughter, such as feeding, bathing, changing her, the work is evenly distributed. The both of them worked out a system where my cousin has the morning shift and her boyfriend takes the night shift and during the day they take turns.
I moved in with my boyfriend. After giving birth to my healthy baby boy my grandmother came to my house every day and helped me with my baby boy. I was young so I did not know anything about raising a baby. I was still a kid myself. She taught me how to raise my son.
