My mother began the study of Christian Science when I was about two. I went through childhood without experiencing so-called children's diseases. My sister, brother, and I were benefited by our mother's reading to us from the Bible and from Mary Baker Eddy's writings. This good foundation was valuable later when I had to prove for myself the truths of Science.

My marriage brought problems which were followed by a serious physical difficulty of an internal nature. It was never diagnosed; but it manifested itself in many distressing ways, and I could not continue my work. My position was held open for me, however, for which I was grateful.

A practitioner lovingly assured me that the way would open for a fuller life with many blessings and that I would receive a complete healing. My thoughts were lifted from the inverted image of man as discordant and mortal to the truth that "Love is enthroned" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mrs. Eddy, p. 454) and to a realization that man is actually God's image and likeness, pure and perfect. Our Leader tells us (ibid., p. 495), "God will heal the sick through man, whenever man is governed by God."
