At an early age I drifted away...

At an early age I drifted away from the church to which my parents belonged, and did not attend any church steadily; but due to much sickness and an unhappy home condition I prayed earnestly for a way out of my difficulties.

My daughter made the acquaintance of a child who attended the Christian Science Sunday School, and I decided to send both my son and my daughter there; why, I did not understand at the time, because I knew nothing about the religion. Looking back now I can see God's loving care and guidance leading me His way.

I began to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and at the end of six months I was lifted out of inharmonious home conditions. No one but God could have brought about the complete release in the manner in which it occurred. The way always opened, even when to mortal sense all seemed confused. Everything was beautifully taken care of without human planning on my part.
