I was privileged to attend the Christian Science Sunday School from the age of five years until I was about twenty. After leaving home to attend college, however, I stopped attending church and for several years had little interest in any religion.

After moving to a western city with my family, I became ill with a stomach disorder, and a physician was called to relieve the pain. For some weeks I submitted to medical treatment and X rays. The physician diagnosed the condition as a severe case of gallstones and stated that I must undergo an operation or I would suffer from then on. When he called to tell me that he had reserved a hospital room for me, I was finally aroused and took my stand for Christian Science. All medical help was discontinued, and a practitioner was engaged.
