That an understanding of the true relationship of God and man blesses and gives freedom from fear has been evidenced in my experience. My college life presented an opportunity to use what I had learned in the Christian Science Sunday School. Looking to Mind in preparing assignments, I experienced much freedom in schoolwork with resulting excellence. Although commuting to the university, I participated in many activities and received membership in several honorary groups during the senior year.

"Love inspires, illumines, designates, and leads the way" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 454), was a helpful statement. Writing term papers proved to be a joyous experience of listening to Mind's direction and Love's inspiration. The belief of time as a factor in determining excellence of work was dispelled. I saw that sleep does not give energy to man, and I was led to study and review the proper passages in preparing for examinations. In undergraduate and graduate study, fear about schoolwork was replaced with an understanding of man, who is ever at one with the source of all right ideas, God.

While at college I participated in the activities of the Christian Science Organization, a most joyous experience. Afternoon testimony meetings and lectures were always looked forward to. Like many college students, I was grateful for Mrs. Eddy's loving provision in the Manual of The Mother Church which establishes these organizations.
