From the May 2005 issue of The Christian Science Journal

My sister always had such an artistic eye that, early on, I thought, "Well, I can't be the artistic one. I'll be the bookish one." But as it turned out, I could be both.

It's so limiting to think that you can't have the full range of artistic expression. You can. There are an unlimited number of ways that you can be creative. Like the infinite rays of the sun, there are infinite ways to express God's qualities. You just have to find the right ray to slide in on. And God will help you find it.

I had no idea that I was going to be a cook. It was always something that I'd loved. But it wasn't until I spent a year praying about my career that God led me to cooking. I wanted a job where I could make the world a better place, be able to support myself, and love what I was doing. Then my husband and I moved to London, and I stumbled into Le Cordon Bleu. After that, the whole thing just unfolded. I never sought any of it out. It just happened. And I attribute that to God.
