Although I attended a Christian Science Sunday School as a child, I did not realize what a wonderful privilege it was to be a student of a religion which teaches that God is Love, an ever-present help in trouble. However, after I graduated from high school, it became necessary for me to turn wholeheartedly to God for help and protection.

My first experience was that of obtaining a position. Relying on God and knowing that as His perfect idea there was a place prepared for me, I was notified of an opening with the government. Later I received three opportunities, consecutively, not only for advancement in salary, but in locations nearer my home.

When my husband went overseas during the last war, the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly were a constant joy and protection for each day. With thoughts of fear and anxiety expressed around me, I praised God for His omnipotent care and for the courage I had gleaned from the truth that makes men free. After two years my husband returned, well and safe, and for this blessing I thank God. A lovely home was provided for us when the outlook was very doubtful and homes were said to be unavailable.
