Our small son started going to...

Our small son started going to the Christian Science Sunday School with his playmate, and one day asked me why I did not read the Bible as did his friend's mother. This question startled me, and I began to take account of myself.

I had been quite religious and prayerful during my childhood and had had many prayers answered. However, a change had come about when my mother passed on while I was away at school and after I had faithfully prayed for her each night. Another change came about later when I was surprised at the pain of childbirth. I could not understand why God allowed this pain. I could not reconcile happenings such as this with my childhood God, and so had stopped studying.

I started the study of Christian Science soon after this, to find out if it could help my sister, and in a short time I witnessed a painless childbirth in Christian Science. Also, I joyfully began to learn of God, who knows no death, and of man in His image and likeness.
