If you haven't seen BYUTV's Joan of Arc documentary, I would highly recommend it. Click here to watch for free. Another great resource is Mark Twain's "Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc," which you can listen to for free by clicking here.
If you could meet any historical figure you admire, who would it be? What do their stories and the stories from your family history teach you?
"One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible that dying."
Joan of Arc
