This question basically calls for you to write a personal essay discussing your religious faith and its role in your life. Here are some ideas to consider and questions to help you get started. When did you first begin to practice your faith? Were you a child, a young person, or an adult? Did you grow up with this faith, or convert later in life? Were your family a big part of your faith, or was your faith experience more individualistic? 

What drew you to your faith tradition, and what keeps you rooted in it? You can talk about conversations or relationships you may have had with people of faith, including ministers or those involved in outreach. 

How has your faith influenced daily life? Do you engage in daily practices such a prayer or study? Do these practices influence your behavior and character? What Christian values have been important to you: kindness, generosity, piety, charity? You might discuss specific challenges you've encountered and how these values have helped you in making decisions or in persevering through difficult times. Just take an honest look at your life experience and I'm sure you will be able to write a wonderful essay. Good luck!
