St. Joan of Arc is not only widely known all over the world for her trust in God, but for her outrageous bravery. In this heroic story of Saint Joan of Arc, everyone will be inspired for the courage of this young lady, who laid her life down for her faith, and for her country. Born to devout Catholic parents Jacques d'Arc and Isabelle Romee, St. Joan of Arc was born on January 6, 1412 in the small village of Doremy, France. She was one of five children which lived on a fifty acre farm which was in the north-eastern part of France. In 1412 at the age of twelve, Joan experienced visions when she was alone in a field. The angels of Saint Michael the Archangel, Saint Catherine of Alexandria, and Saint Margret the Virgin, had appeared to her and told her to drive out the English in France. She was very surprised that the angels had appeared to her, a woman, to do such a job. When she was sixteen years old, she went to see Count Robert de Baurdicourt, who was an army commander in the town of Vaucouleurs, to get permission to see the royal french court. Count Robert de Baurdicourt did not take her seriously and made a joke of Joan and her visions. He then sent her home. Along with two other men in January 1429, she returned to have a meeting with the Count to tell him a prediction she had made about an upcoming battle. When Joan was proved right about her prediction, Count Robert de Baurdicourt granted her permission to have a meeting with the Charles VII. She dressed up as a man and was then escorted along with six other men to Chinon. During the private conference with Charles VII, he was very impressed with Joan and her ideas. She also won the favor with Charles' mother-in-law and she was sent on an expedition to Orleans. They thought of her as their only source of light and hope in the hard times of France.
