In Isaiah 45:5 we read, "I girded thee, though thou hast not known me," and in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. 494), "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need."

Many years ago the above citations were called to my attention when I was becoming a victim of tuberculosis. I had been told by several doctors that I must live in a high, dry climate, and for a while my living in such a climate seemed to help. Later on, however, when I was working in an office in Chicago, under much strain, the symptoms were aggravated. At this time I was led by a friend to study Christian Science. I had help from a practitioner, who explained to me that God is Life and not subject to sin, disease, or death. I studied the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly, soon bought my own books, and within a year made application for membership in a branch church. The following year I joined The Mother Church and within five years had class instruction.
