Dreaming Like God

Last edited 13th August 2018

One of my favorite things about telenovelas (Spanish-language soap operas) is that through all kinds of turmoils, drama, and plot twists one thing is always consistent: each character has a purpose and is the hero of his or her own story. This is easily seen for the protagonist because the story is told from their point of view; but each side character is also the hero of their own story, even if their story doesn’t get as much screen time.

During those moments I found myself only able to mutter a simple prayer “Come, Holy Spirit.” This was the only prayer I could say to bring about the peace needed to correct my children’s behavior without screaming.
