Although I had attended the Christian Science Sunday School from an early age and received many physical healings, I did not make the study of Christian Science a part of my daily living. The result was that I found myself very unhappy in my employment, in my companionship, and in my station in life.

Like the prodigal son I knew where I could find health, happiness, contentment, and I went to see a Christian Science practitioner and explained my situation. Work was taken up, and I then began to take the journey back to my Father's house. I began to see that I was not a selfish individualist dependent on material circumstances and conditions, but I was in reality an idea of God, existing to express Him, to serve Him, and to love Him. As I held to this and began to see those around me as the pure, perfect children of God, more humility and an utter dependency on God for all my decisions and actions were manifest. All desire for social drinking disappeared, as well as the desire for smoking. No specific work had been done for these two habits, but the earnestness of my desire to know and to do the will of God completely dissipated them.
