  • Life is like a book.

    The title page is your name,

    the preface your introduction to the

    world.

    The pages are a daily record of your

    efforts, trials, pleasures,

    discouragements, and achievements.

    Day by day your thoughts and acts

    are being inscribed in your book of life.

    Hour by hour the record is being made

    that must stand for all time.

    Once the word ‘finish’ must be written,

    let it then be said of your book

    that it is a record

    of noble purpose, generous service,

    and

    work well done.

  • ACKNOWLEDMENTS

    This thesis would not be finished without the help of others. I believe each of

    them who has helped and supported me has been sent by God. Hence, my most

    tremendous gratitude is addressed to Jesus Christ, my source of love, joy, strength,

    and my all in all. I thank Him for every single thing I have and every single moment I

    experience. He always stands beside me and holds me tight every time I feel restless.

    He shows me what the real unconditional love is. I wish to walk the path of life in His

    embrace forever and ever.

    I am so deeply indebted to my major sponsor, Drs. L. Bambang Hendarto

    Y., M.Hum. that I wish to thank him for his willingness to guide me in finishing my

    thesis by sharing his time to read, to check, to correct, and to criticize it. I also thank

    him for his wonderful patience, advice, and kindness as well. There are not enough

    words to tell how much I thank him. My sincerest gratitude goes to Sr. Maureen,

    FCJ, for her kindness and willingness to check and correct my grammar. I really

    appreciate her help.

    I would like also to address my gratitude to all of my lecturers who have

    taught and provided me with knowledge and skills to prepare me for the working

    world. My earnest appreciation also goes to Ms. Lanny Anggawati for her inspiring

    lessons in SPD’s class. She has shown me great qualitities of a ‘teacher’. Moreover, I

    would like to thank Mbak Danik and Mbak Tari for helping me to deal with the

    administrative stuffs.

    My deepest gratitude goes to my beloved family. I am greatly indebted to my

    Mom and Dad for loving and caring for me. I would like also to address my countless

    thanks to my Big Bro who has supported me financially during my study in

  • Yogyakarta. He is the best brother ever. To my only sister, my second brother, my

    two little brothers, I thank them for always supporting, loving, and caring for me. I

    am proud to be part of this big family. I love them all.

    I wish to thank my charming cousin, Mimi, for always telling me not to give

    up, for seeing me as a model, and for her persistence which inspires me a lot. I am so

    thankful to have Wex as my best friend. I thank her for showing me the real friend in

    deed and in need. I also thank Na for keep telling me to finish my thesis soon with her

    typical-straightforward style which may make some people feel offended, but for me

    her ‘harsh’ words are motivating. My next gratitude also goes to my friends in SunSix

    boarding house: Mbak SanQ, Citra, Te-Goy, Mbak Pic, Ade, Funny, and Nciz for

    every moment we have shared together and to my three beautiful sisters in my new

    boarding house, Ms. Happy, Ms. Neny, and Mondee. I also thank Ian for willing to

    read and post me some questions related to my thesis. My next appreciation goes to

    my colleagues in CIC. I am really happy working with them.

    I would like to thank my close friends with whom I have spent my days in

    campus: Ucil, Sasha, Echie, Ita, Vivi, and Mawar, especially to Wieda, my partner

    to share the progress of my thesis. She always encouraged me when I did no progress

    on my thesis. She deserves my sincere thanks. I also thank all of my PBI ‘02 pals. I

    am glad being part of this team.

    I wish also to send my gratitude to my KTB’s friends: Mbak Othie as the

    leader, Connie Capunk, Corry-Morry, Tatatouile, and Amsal-Pancasila. I thank

    them for their motivating words, support, and prayers. I address my huge thanks also

    to my beloved sister, K’Darma, for her immense care, support, and prayers. Next, I

    am also thankful to Yoel for his sincere care, support, smses, calls, and every day

    prayer as well. My endless gratitute goes to all of the Sunday School teachers of

  • GKI Gejayan. I thank them for their boundless support and friendship we have

    shared in the ministry. I am really grateful to be part of this wonderful ministry.

    My special gratitude goes to ‘Someone’ who has recently colored my days. I

    thank him for the small talks, discussions, laughter, and his greatly contagious spirit in

    serving Jesus. Those moments we shared together mean something to me. We might

    not be able to have them back, and therefore, I have written them in my heart as sweet

    memories in my symphony of life.

    The last but not least, my appreciation goes to all people who have not been

    mentioned above but have supported me. I thank them for their care and prayers. I

    will not try to list each of them because I am afraid I will miss a name. Let God list

    their names because He is the only One who will not fail in doing so. May God be

    with them all, always.
