From this observation, this sitcom ties everyday life into some of their episodes. Thirdly, this sitcom is a firm believer in Christ. No matter what goes on, the family always reminds each other that prayer can get them through whatever obstacles, problems, or tribulations that may be thrown their way. Lastly, this sitcom keeps a family and foundation built off of love. They are very compassionate about being there for one another through the hard times and helping each other out anyway that the can.
The film “Praying with Lior” produced and directed by Ilana Trachtman is the story of a young Jewish boy with Down’s Syndrome who is approaching his Bar Mitzva. This film caught my eye because I too have a special needs child and often struggle with how much he understands about having a relationship with a higher power. What struck me most about this story was how joyful both Lior and his community seemed to be in their faith. The acceptance and understanding that surrounds him seemed to be a wonderful example of living faith. In our studies I found it interesting that the Jewish faith does encourage living the religion in daily life.

He encourages his daughter to cultivate her mind and become
Also, calling her father “Papa” shows the respect Kambili had for her father and informs us of her middle class family. Moreover, when Kambili calls her father “Papa”, it illustrates how she worships him, believing he is almost as significant as God. Kambili uses simple syntax, “We had just returned from church.” This introduces Kambili as a calm, young female that puts her memories forward without attempting to create a more complex scenario. This creates a more story-telling type of novel, from a young girl that is writing everything from memory and consequently, everything that is told is shortened so that she doesn’t forget anything as she notifies us of
The women and children look to them to make decisions and provide what they need to live. In the very first chapter, Steinbeck writes, “Women and children knew deep in themselves that no misfortune was too great to bear if their men were whole…The men sat still—thinking—figuring” (4). The rest of the Joads lean on Pa and Uncle John, who manage to remain strong and give them hope through much of the book. Tom and Ma are leaders in a different sense. They sit below Pa and Uncle John, but they are the practical characters who ensure that the necessary work gets done.
They then became married and had a child together, a son named Obed. It is shown within this book that with faith in God, the social class can change and one can be accepted within a higher society. It was Naomi’s influence that Ruth still maintained allegiance to her family, while continuing to trust and follow god (Hubbard 1989). When Naomi’s husband died, she knew God would take care of her and her sons. She had enough faith to not give up; Naomi trusted God and continued to serve him in spite of what was in front of her.

Keller describes her experience as “unspeakable happiness” when she reads her favorite stories to her family who have supported her throughout her battles. She calls speech a “blessing” because this passion and desire that she longs for is keeping her fight half the battle.

As Ms. Keller describes her experience, she is not only talking to people who cannot hear or talk but also the families who should be willful to help and support in any way their family members who want to learn to be given their lost abilities.
(Jeremiah 29:11-For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.) The worldview on how I think about, treat, and speak to others on a daily basis is quite frank. I was raised to treat other with kindness and respect. As my parents raised me I find myself caring for others more than myself, especially if they are less fortunate than I am. In the bible there are many scriptures that teaches the reader about loving your brother and/or sister even if they refuse to treat you in a respectable manner as you do to
