As I look back over many experiences, I see God's sure direction

As I look back over many experiences, I see God's sure direction. Loving parents insisted I attend Christian Science Sunday School, even though I was not particularly eager to go at times. There I gained a foundation in understanding God upon which I was able to build later.

When I was ready for college, I could find no housing at the university I was to attend. I was approximately number eight hundred on a waiting list for the dormitories. But I trusted in God and refused to worry. Just as it seemed I would have to live at home and commute to campus (about an hour-and-a-half drive each way), I heard about an off-campus dormitory with a possible opening. The house was at maximum occupancy, save one. I was able to have the last place available. This first term at college was when I began really to study and apply Christian Science for myself. I joined the Christian Science college organization on campus and also The Mother Church. Taking these steps brought me many blessings and resulted in much spiritual growth. They set me and helped keep me on the right path.
