Mother Teresa was her own person independent, obedient, and yet she still challenged some notions and expectations. She was very willing to listen and follow her conscience. She really trusted in herself to make the right choice so she always did what she thought was right even if it went against expectations. Although Mother Teresa never thought of becoming a nun until she was 18 her life was centered on the Church. She was fascinated by missionary stories, and could point to places on the map where mission trips took place. When Mother Teresa’s father died, when she was eight, her family encountered many financial crises. Her mother was had strong faith and trust in God. Her mother still raised her children with love, care, and affection. Her mother’s strong beliefs and religious ways inspired Mother Teresa to build up compassion for charity.
