The study of Christian Science offers to all boundless opportunities for joyful participation in God's blessings. Especially to the young person in training for future service does it serve as a guide past many pitfalls and hardships peculiar to the formative years. To this fact my own experience bears testimony.

When I first approached Christian Science, I was harassed by no end of ills and untoward circumstances. I was sick in both body and thought, impoverished, fearful, and lonely. During the few years that have followed my introduction to Truth, as revealed in the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, these disagreeable conditions have disappeared to make way for health, abundance, courage, and friendship.

During my first year in college, very heavy demands were made upon my time; I was attending a full course of instruction, and besides earning my own living I was managing to help others at home. Because I lacked the knowledge that God lovingly provides for all of His children, about six weeks after the opening of the second semester of the school year my health gave way under the sense of strain and responsibility. A malignant pulmonary disorder set in, and, in spite of conscientious medical attention, I was forced to stay in bed for six weeks. Almost no studying was possible during the illness, and the organization by which I had been employed meanwhile found it essential to hire someone else. Thus, I found myself weak from the effects of a long illness, without visible means of support, and discouraged about the prospects of continuing college work.
