About 20 years ago I headed off to college as a young adult, very happy to be starting this new adventure in my life. I was grateful to be attending a small school where all of the students and faculty were Christian Scientists. But I also started out the year unsure of which direction I wanted to take in terms of a career. I really didn’t have a particular interest, or any idea what to major in. I often turned to a loved poem by Mary Baker Eddy titled “ ‘Feed My Sheep,’ ” which begins:
Shepherd, show me how to go
O’er the hillside steep,
How to gather, how to sow,—
How to feed Thy sheep; (Poems, p. 14)
Little did I know that within a few weeks I would have my answer on “how to go,” and find my direction.
