From the time I was a little child I went to a Christian Science Sunday School, but not until I was older did I really begin to know what Christian Science is.

I was at the crossroads, and this material life no longer seemed worth living. I turned to Christian Science for comfort. That was the beginning. Love led me to a Christian Scientist whose friendship helped me to keep on and to take a few faltering steps in the right direction. Day by day I learned that God is our Father-Mother, and that there is no problem which cannot be worked out by applying the law of God.

With the help of a practitioner a problem was solved which seemed to me nothing short of a miracle. The healing seemed slow at the time, but when discouragement would try to creep in I would turn to page 22 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," where Mrs. Eddy writes: " 'Work out your own salvation,' is the demand of Life and Love, for to this end God worketh with you. 'Occupy till I come!' Wait for your reward, and 'be not weary in well doing.' If your endeavors are beset by fearful odds, and you receive no present reward, go not back to error, nor become a sluggard in the race. When the smoke of battle clears away, you will discern the good you have done, and receive according to your deserving."
