As a very young child, I first...

As a very young child, I first came in contact with Christian Science while visiting on a farm in Michigan. It was harvest time, and while jumping about in the haystack I landed on the end of my spine on the hard ground. The farm hands felt some concern about the fall, but I managed to get to the house, where loving consolation was given. A member of the family brought out the Bible and Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. Not fully realizing what was being done, but feeling a great sense of peace and comfort, I shortly forgot my fall, arose, and went back to my play.

Years went by, and after graduating from college I again came in contact with Christian Science. During a week-end visit with a classmate I was most impressed with the joy, peace, and harmony expressed in her home. I commented upon this to my hostess. She accepted this comment in the quiet, loving, humble manner of all those who are sincerely striving to follow in the footsteps of Truth. I later learned that I had been visiting in the home of a consecrated Christian Science practitioner.
