Joan of Arc was an exceptional character The pureness in her heart and the devotion she had to her faith drew me to learn more about her In every way possible she was a saint Her life provides inspiration to the rest of the world and teaches us to remain true to the voice of God within ourselves Joan of Arc was born on January 6 1412 During Joans childhood the land of France was caught in the middle of the Hundred Years War Her hometown Domremy was placed partially between the forces of the English and the French On occasion Joan and her family had to flee from armies passing through her town Ever since a young age Joan stood out among other boys and girls when it came to faith She would never distract herself with things that she knew were not right and good in her heart no matter what others might say In one instance Joan did not join in when fellow friends made offerings of flowers to fairies instead she offered the same to the saints When Joan was 13 years old she started hearing voices The voices were of St Michael and several angels that only urged her to attend church and pray often Soon Joan heard the voices of St Catherine and St Margaret as well After a year or so these same voices started telling her that she must help the future king of France to be crowned At the time Charles VII had to be coronated at Reims by tradition but the problem was that at that time Reims was held by the English The English had their own hopes of crowning Henry VI who was but a child When Joan was 16 years old St Michael told her more specifically to drive out the English and bring the king to be crowned She was frightened upon hearing this but a sense of peace
