When I was fifteen...

...kids my age probably thought I had everything. I was quite a successful athlete in school. I had many friends, so popularity was no problem. I usually found myself on the honor role, and was taking accelerated courses. And yet, I wasn't satisfied!

Then I met a friend at school who was a Christian Scientist. Up to that time I had thought Christian Science was just some odd approach to an overly-religious life. But this friend and her family impressed me. They had an "extra" quality that I had not often seen.

So one day while I was downtown, I went into a secondhand bookstore and bought a copy of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy.
