During the many years that I have been studying Christian Science, it has brought me untold blessings.

From childhood I had experienced a deep spiritual yearning to understand God and to learn to pray aright. These words were often uppermost in my thought: "Oh that I knew where I might find him!" And then these words of Jesus, "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled," would bring me some hope and comfort. Those who have truly experienced this deep spiritual yearning can realize with what joyous expectation and eagerness I listened to the encouraging words of a friend, a young student of Christian Science, when she assured me that through the study of this Science I could gain a demonstrable understanding of God. I immediately realized that that was what I desired above all else, and that nothing the world might give could be compared with this "pearl of great price."
