At the time I entered high school, I began to attend a Christian Science Sunday School. How grateful I am that my parents were willing to have me do so, for Christian Science is now the way of Life for me!

When I was a senior in high school, I was expected to take a college entrance examination in chemistry in the spring. To my dismay the chemistry course was even more difficult than predicted, and I received a barely passing grade for the first marking period. It had been brought out in Sunday School that Mind, God, is the source of all intelligence, so I knew there was an answer to my problem close at hand.

I told my Sunday School teacher of the trouble, and she gave me several helpful passages to study from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. One that helped greatly is (p. 506), "Spirit, God, gathers unformed thoughts into their proper channels, and unfolds these thoughts, even as He opens the petals of a holy purpose in order that the purpose may appear." As fear was eliminated through my prayerful work and the work of my teacher, I performed better in classwork and on tests. Confusion was replaced by a sense of dominion, and my grades improved. I received my highest score on the chemistry portion of the examination, and later the college asked if I wished to do further work in the subject.
