Personal Worldview Essay

The three components that make up my worldview are God, knowledge and ethics

because they shape my thoughts, experiences, education and life decisions. I have

picked these three components because it is not easy to get through life without God

guiding us through our lives with our everyday decisions. The knowledge is important

because God has put us here to teach and help others and the more I know about what I

am doing and with the experience it is easier to help others. I try to follow the ethics that

he has put out there for us and it helps keep me on track to follow what is right and

wrong and to conduct myself in the appropriate way.

The first component that makes up my worldview is God. God has been with me in

spirit my whole life. I have attended Sunday school and Church for as long as I can

remember and was baptized in our Methodist Church when I was little. I also became a

member of our church when I was about 12 or 13 years old. My husband and I are both

members of the Methodist Church and were married there 20 years ago. All three of our

children have been baptized there are attending the Youth Program at the church that I

attended when I was growing up. God has been with me through all my experiences that I

have been faced with through out my life. God has been with me through all the good and

bad times of my life and has pulled me through it all. The first experience that I really

noticed that God was with us was when our youngest son was born with a heart defect

and was shipped from our local hospital to a John’s Hopkins Children’s Hospital that

could treat his heart problem. He was with us through all his surgeries which his first one

was when he was 5 days old. He pulled our son through his surgery and saw him and us

through the trying times after surgery. He is our miracle baby because he should have

never survived the normal birth. But God has showed us that he is meant to be here

and he is doing great. He is 11 ½ years old today and doing fantastic. Our second

experience is when my husband got hurt at work 4 years ago and has not been able to

work, He has been here for us during my husband’s surgeries and through our financial

issues. Which still are not great but we can only do our best and hope it all works out in

the end. My husband just had his 3rd surgery this past Monday since he has gotten hurt

and we are so glad that God got him through the surgery and is watching over him during

his recovery.God has played a role in my educations and life decisions. He was there to

help guide me through my decision as to what I wanted to do with my life. He helped me

decide at first right out of high school that I wanted to work and attend college until I

decided what I wanted to do in my life. My first semester of college I was taking

Accounting classes and half way through I realized that Accounting was not what I

wanted to do. That is when I went on to get my AA Degree in Early Childhood

Education. He has also helped me with my decisions in life. He helped me to decide that I

wanted to use my AA Degree to as a Home Daycare Provider so that I was able to stay at

home with my children while they were growing up. I was able to stay home with my

children through their first years of life full-time and then I was home with them through

their Elementary School years. Now I am able to finish my college classes and earn my

Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education so that I can continue to improve my

self and finish my goals as continuing to work with children and help them learn as much

as they possibly can.

The second component that makes up my worldview is knowledge. I am always

looking to learn something new and always wanting to be able to do things on my own no

matter what it is....
