I grew up in a home with a loving mother who taught me the Lord's Prayer at an early age. I depended upon it when the going seemed rough. One time when I had a sore throat, it was painful to eat. My mother said that I must eat and told me to say the Lord's Prayer before eating. I did with my whole heart. While eating a piece of toast, an abscess broke in my throat, and that brought my problem to an end. Trust in prayer was the answer for me.

Years later when I was seeking a church home where I could really learn about God, I spoke to my husband about this, just after attending a church service which did not meet my need. My husband told me about one time when he had attended a service in a Church of Christ, Scientist, and as he put it, they talked only about God. The next Wednesday evening we attended a Christian Science testimony meeting, and I was so impressed that I couldn't wait for Sunday to come so that I might attend a Sunday service and learn more of God. This I did, and I have been learning more of God ever since through daily study of the two textbooks, the Bible, and Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, as well as her other writings.
