When I was encouraged to start reading the Bible Lessons, which are set forth in the Christian Science Quarterly for students of Science to study, the subject of the lesson I first read was "Love," and it gave me a clearer understanding of God and of man. Later I realized that I must attend every Christian Science church service and Wednesday testimony meeting in order to gain more of the truth. This practice became a joy to me, and it was through my study and regular attendance every Sunday and every Wednesday evening that I gained the true idea of God. I also learned that divine Love is ever present to guide, protect, and heal. I am grateful that Christian Science has taught me that man reflects divine Love.

One Sunday evening, after I had been studying Christian Science for about four years, I sustained a broken rib. I felt no pain from the rib at first, but was very uncomfortable. I tried to pray as I was learning to do in Christian Science and to bring about a healing; but each day the rib became worse.
