Whenever I read, "Man's extremity is God's opportunity," I am reminded of the time, about six years ago, when Christian Science first found me. I was in a deplorable condition, hopeless, discouraged, full of doubt and fear. The burden seemed too heavy to carry longer, so I earnestly prayed all night, asking God for help and guidance to see the Christ-way.

In the morning, a dear friend of the family called and spoke to me of Christian Science and its divine Principle. As I had never heard of this religion, however, I paid little attention to her. But she kindly persisted, saying Christian Science was just what I needed, and urging me to give it a trial. She read from the Christian Science Sentinel an article in which I was much interested. Then she explained that God is Love and is good; that I was His perfect child, and that my suffering was the result of wrong thoughts which were holding me in bondage. Then I began to realize that Christian Science was the answer to my ceaseless prayer, and asked to be told more about it.
