The study of Christian Science...

The study of Christian Science has brought many blessings into my life. Not the least of them has been the purification of character which has gone on steadily since I first became a serious student about twenty years ago.

For some time I had been seeking an understanding of the many baffling aspects of human life and of a God I could understand and trust. The various religions and philosophies I inquired into did not satisfy me. Then I was led to the study of Christian Science. My first endeavor to read the textbook by Mrs. Eddy was disappointing, for I could not understand it. It was as if I were reading a foreign language. Yet something within me told me that this was the truth for which I had been searching. So, reluctantly, I put the book aside, confident, however, that sometime I would be able to understand it.

Jesus' promise in Matthew (7:7), "Ask, and it shall lie given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you," was fulfilled some months later when I again opened Science and Health in a hopeful and eager attitude of mind. Great was my joy upon finding that I could easily understand the precious truths stated therein. This experience has always been an inspiration to me, showing that we must wait patiently and trustfully for the soil to be prepared so that the seed, when sown, will bring forth fruit at the right time.
