I was reared in a Christian...

I was reared in a Christian home, and before coming to Christian Science I had read the Bible through once but with little understanding. Since taking up the study of the truth in the light of this newly revealed Science and reading its textbook several times, I learned to love the Bible. The spiritual import of the Word of God unfolded gradually and became clearer to me. Statements heretofore seemingly inconsistent took on new meaning.

Many adjustments in my life had to be made at that time. While searching for this truth, I was led, through God's guidance, to prepare for a different vocation. If I was to do so, it was necessary for me to move to another place and to find more remunerative work, since there was also a need to contribute toward my mother's care.
