    correct words to fill in the blanks

    The first settlers went to North America in order to escape from the many controls under which they had lived in European societies. These controls were created by the kings, the aristocracy, the church and governments which had power in European countries... The church _________ the way people could live and think.

    So many ordinary people decided to _______ a better life 3000 miles across the ______ in America.

    1. I believe that the word 'controlled' should be used to fill in first blank.

    2. I would use the word 'lead' for the second blank although I believe 'live' is also correct.

    3. For the last blank, I would use 'sea'. I don't think 'seas' is correct.

    Am I correct in my choice of words?

    Many thanks.

    Thanks, Daruma.

    I didn't think of 'seek', which I agree is the word needed.
