Christian Science came into my life most unexpectedly

Christian Science came into my life most unexpectedly. When I was nineteen years of age, my family were advised by a medical specialist that I had a goiter, which would require a surgical operation. Other members of our family had been afflicted with this same trouble. Because of my age the specialist suggested that I first have a year's period of rest.

I was sent to live with an aunt who was a Christian Scientist. She kept her Bible and her Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy on the living room table. Some time after I had been living with her, I realized I was waiting each night for the other members of our household to retire so that I could be alone to read these textbooks of Christian Science.
