When I was a small child, a copy of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, was sent to our home by my grandmother, who, through Christian Science treatment, had been healed very quickly of a severe internal difficulty pronounced incurable by the physicians. For a number of years this little volume was rarely opened, for none of us realized what priceless treasures lay between its covers.

Later I left home to attend school in the midwestern city where my grandmother was living. When I opened my trunk, what a surprise I had when I found that my mother had given the copy of Science and Health to me! As the months went by I read it more and more frequently, but would hide it after each reading, as I did not wish to be thought religious. Week ends were spent with my grandmother, with whom I attended a Christian Science church. She subscribed to the Christian Science periodicals, which I read with absorbed interest whenever I found the opportunity to be alone. Finally the day came when the opinion of friends and relatives no longer disturbed me, for I was thoroughly convinced of the truth of Christian Science. With the healing of false pride another avenue for learning more of God came into my experience—the happy privilege of attending the Christian Science Sunday School, where I was shown how to make the teachings of this Science practical in daily life.
