When I was just beginning to learn to read, I received a Bible as a reward for recitation at the Sunday School I attended. My parents were not, at that time, active churchgoers, but they always saw to it that my brother and I regularly attended a Sunday School. I do not recall if anyone told me I should do so or not, but from the moment I received my Bible I faithfully and consecutively read a few verses every day.

Years passed, and I had read the entire Bible through many times, understanding little but loving all I read, until my copy literally disintegrated. This was shortly after my marriage, and at just about the same time Christian Science came into our lives, along with a new Bible and its precious accompaniment, the textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
