Almost thirty years ago Christian Science was presented to me as a help for discouragement and lack. A dear friend, when I related my troubles and asked for advice, told me to go to the public library (there were no Reading Rooms or practitioners in that small town then) and get a book called "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and read it.

The first lines in the chapter on Prayer were so clear that I declared, "Why, this is the truth." I had had no religious training as a child, having lived in the country far from churches, but I was familiar with the Bible. When I went into town to attend school I wondered why there were so many different denominations of religion when all were seeking the same goal, namely, God and heaven. But when I began the study of Christian Science I found it to be the universal religion, which gives us the right understanding of God as Father-Mother, and of man as the child of God, infinite Spirit.
