For several years I had been susceptible to infections

For several years I had been susceptible to infections. This had resulted in minor surgery and visits to several specialists, who informed me that they could not determine the cause of these outbreaks and could only control them with medication. This eventually led me to a state of deep depression and reliance on tranquilizers.

One summer while on a camping trip, our family stayed at a camp operated by Christian Scientists. Many of the other campers were also Christian Scientists. I was drawn to their religion by the great joy and freedom from fear they expressed. I started to read the textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Within a year my husband and I and our children were regularly attending the Sunday services held in our neighborhood by a group of Christian Scientists.
