I shall always be grateful to the young college student who later became my son's wife, because she brought Christian Science into my life. I had been in an automobile accident and was suffering from shock and concussion. She came to my home and read to me from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy every day for a week. I didn't understand much that she read, but it did soothe me; and I was able to be out of bed and care for my family. Since that experience I have relied on Christian Science alone for healing.

One statement read to me stood out from all the rest: "Know thyself, and God will supply the wisdom and the occasion for a victory over evil" (ibid., p. 571). I took up the study of Christian Science because I longed to know myself and to understand man's relationship to God. I was at the same time seeking a solution to an unhappy situation in my home.
