Holy Bible

My object is the Holy Bible. My Grandmother gave me the Bible because the scriptures not only talks about the life of human flesh that begins with the birth and ends to death, but also spiritual life that begins with Jesus Christ and is eternal life after death. The year this took place was in 2012 when I was 13 years and when I had the chance to visit my Grandma. My Grandmother wanted me to always live my life based on the Bible and always being influenced as a true christian especially going to live in a different world, America. To my Grandma, the bible was something that she expected to be at the forefront of our minds. Grandma would often tell stories about the life of Jesus and would ask me questions about how I would have dealt with similar situations. This book has left a trail from the day I migrated to the USA. Favorite quote my Grandma told me was “ I’m nothing without God”. She told me to never forget about my identity as God’s child. The Bible has continued carrying parts of me and my journey coming to the United States.
