Resolving to pray about college essays

Senior year in high school is something that many students look forward to as a year to relax a little bit and get excited about going to college. Yet there is a hurdle left to jump over … college applications, especially the essays. 

Many students, including me, start off thinking these essays can’t be too much work. And just like many students, I realized I was incorrect. Having to write essays about the same topics over and over, often getting them edited and reedited by peers, teachers, and parents, and finally deciding to write a totally new essay started to feel really stressful for me. As this stress started to get the better of me, I turned to prayer in Christian Science. 

God, divine Mind, would lead me to the right ideas I needed.
