When I graduated from high school, jobs were few and far between. Experience was a necessary factor in obtaining employment, and I had none. It was most important to me to find a position in order to prove to myself that I could fit into society and pull my own weight. So I decided to work out this problem through prayer in Christian Science.

I made every effort to find work. I looked for work, made many applications, and kept busy at home by painting my parents' house. Most important, I kept my thoughts filled with the realization that man's real and only occupation is to reflect God, and that man's remuneration is one of overflowing abundance of good. When asked the question of the day "Have you found a job yet?" I would always reply, "I am busy."
