I have been greatly privileged by being brought up in Christian Science. At an early age I entered the Christian Science Sunday School and continued there until I was twenty. Other blessings have been membership in The Mother Church, class instruction after my first year of college, and membership in a Christian Science Organization at college. These foundational steps, together with daily study of the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly, reading of the periodicals, and attendance at Christian Science Sunday services, at Wednesday testimony meetings, and at lectures, have brought me much good. They have proved the truth of Mrs. Eddy's words on pages 253 and 254 of Science and Health: "The divine demand, 'Be ye therefore perfect,' is scientific, and the human footsteps leading to perfection are indispensable."

Each one of these steps has helped me immeasurably in my journey from sense to Soul, and I wish to express my gratitude for every activity which our revered Leader, Mrs. Eddy, has so lovingly provided for us.

During the last year of my college experience I had a beautiful instance of God's law in operation. One of my professors, though genuinely interested in his subject, seemed to me very vague and incomprehensible. Consequently, I had difficulty in understanding his teaching. I had been trying to handle the situation in Christian Science, but one day it appeared to me that he was particularly unjust in condemning a paper of mine. A sense of injustice and aggravation took hold of me, thus closing my thought to anything I might have learned.
