My husband informed me one evening he was considering a new position—one of advancement—in his company. But accepting it would involve a move from the West to the East Coast. At the time I had a business—a partnership—which I had worked very hard to establish. Also my parents, who lived in the area, had recently divorced, and I felt each needed my support. False responsibility and pride made the thought of moving seem overwhelming.

Having been raised in Christian Science, however, I immediately turned to God. This statement in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy came to thought (p. 254): "When we wait patiently on God and seek Truth righteously, He directs our path." I reaffirmed that there is only one divine Mind, God, governing all His ideas. Together my husband and I put our absolute, unselfed trust in God.

The job change meant we could afford to buy a home—something we could not do in the area where we were then living, as houses were too costly. Another plus was that I could work at home, designing—a part of my work that before had been neglected. It also meant that my husband and I would have more time together, which up to this period in our experience had been rare. With such possibilities for progress, we decided to make the move.
