When I first heard of Christian Science I was in a most unhappy and despondent mental state, finding no joy in living, and I had never known good health. I now know it was divine Love that led me to seek employment in an establishment where, I soon learned, all the other employees were Christian Scientists. Their conversation centered around God, Love, Christ, healing, man as God's image—subjects I had never discussed, much less understood, though I had considered myself a Christian; and surely I had never experienced God's protection as they claimed to do.

At first I listened in secret amusement, but soon I was drinking in every word; and finally I humbly asked how I too could find happiness, health, and the attainments I rightfully desired. Gladly they gave me booklets to read. I could not comprehend them fully, but I did gain a new idea of God, as caring for me and granting me what was right for me to have. Then the office was closed for the summer and I no longer had these friends to help me, but I clung to the thought that God would guide me.
