If you refer to the link below you will see that one of our Educators has answered this question previously and done an outstanding job in doing so.

As you will see, she is remembered for the most part for:

1. Religious Determination.  Even in the face of real threats of physical harm and death she would not waver in her commitment to what she saw as "right". Conviction is a rare quality to find and she seemed to epitomize it even in dire circumstances.

2. Faith.  In spite of all of the efforts to dissuade her, she was convinced that she heard the voice of God. Nothing anyone could say or do could change that.

3. Courage. In a day and age when women were not often regarded as authorities, she stepped to the forefront and spoke anyway.

JOAN OF ARC was born 600 years ago. Six centuries is a long time to continue to mark the birth of a girl who, according to her family and friends, knew little more than spinning and watching over her father’s flocks.

What is it about Joan of Arc? Why is her story of enduring interest more than a half a millennium after her birth?

Joan of Arc had several great and special qualities-- 

Here are a few: Brave, couragous, leader, loyal, trusting, caring, and faithful--
