I think your statement is indeed personal and does a good job conveying your leadership and how you have moved forward since the passing of your father. But remember it is key that you do not appear divisive in your statement. Discussion of religion, while it is important to you, should done with the utmost sensitivity and where you are welcoming of other faiths, as your class will likely be made up of many different believers or non-believers. Also make sure to visit Bowen's website (http://law.ualr.edu/aboutus/
) which has some fantastic information which makes it unique i.e. class size (15:1 student/faculty ratio) etc. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
