To one leaning solely on material methods for attainment, life can become a devastating experience. But in an extremity we can always turn to God and be helped, as I quickly found when first applying what I was learning in Christian Science.

I tried everything, humanly speaking, but resentment grew, and the situation went from bad to worse. Nothing I tried seemed to work at all, and to add to the anguish, a physical problem began to manifest itself—something new to my experience.

One day after all else failed, my mother-in-law, who knew nothing about the career details but who was a student of Christian Science, simply asked why I didn't try Christian Science.
