Before I had ever heard the...

Before I had ever heard the precious words "Christian Science" I had been reared in a lovely family, adherents of the Greek Orthodox faith, in which high standards and good morals reigned; yet there was fear of sin, sickness, and death in our thought and speech.

My prayers were directed to asking for things to be changed and things to be given, such as health, peace, and harmony. I prayed for peace and harmony because at this particular time World War II was on, and there was a great deal of fear and unrest in the country where I lived. Of course, Truth was there all the time, but I did not know about it; therefore, I could not see it until I was married to a student of Christian Science and had to leave home to go to a strange land, to live among strange people and customs, and to speak a strange language.

Life was going on harmoniously until one day loneliness and homesickness came to the surface. Previously, these mortal errors were hidden deep down behind the satisfaction of human companionship. My husband came home one day to find me unhappy, disturbed, and in tears. When he asked what was wrong with me, mortal mind gave all kinds of excuses; but my husband saw the powerlessness of the error. He recommended a visit to a friend whom I had never met before; however, I came to know that she was a very devoted student of Christian Science, and through her consecrated prayers she helped me.
