Back to school...with God as my instructor

Here is an article I never dreamed I’d write.

While in public school, my academic grades were poor. I was blessed to progress from one level to the next without interruption. My twelfth grade English instructor informed me that my performance on the final exam rose just above the passing mark. Somehow I managed to attend college, majoring in the creative arts, but English was still a curriculum requirement I had to suffer through.

Though I didn’t grow up in Christian Science, my background was heavily Bible-oriented. So I did rely on prayer to get me through my classes, and I graduated on time with two bachelor’s degrees. After I thanked God for that accomplishment, I had no intention of returning to school. I knew that a master’s degree in my chosen field would require writing.
