I did not come into Christian Science because of any...

I did not come into Christian Science because of any physical need, but through the need of a religion. In early youth I attended intermittently a church whose teachings dwelt on the so-called intellectual phase of living rather than on the spiritual, and which, needless to say, did not in the least satisfy my spiritual hunger. In my home I was taught to pray and to believe in God, but to what I was praying continually puzzled me.

Soon after my marriage a friend gave me a copy of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, but still being in bondage to the belief of intellect and not having found the book classed with the "best literature" of the day, I never even turned its pages, but packed it away in my trunk. A few years later, during a period of enforced retirement, I picked up a copy of the above-mentioned book, which was lying on a table in the home in which I was then staying; and the first sentence on which my eye fell arrested my attention. From that time on this book has been my constant companion. I had found my God; I had found a logical, satisfying, and truly spiritual religion.
