As a very small child I had great faith in the power of God and prayer, and can recall many times when my mother was ill that I would pray on my knees at her bedside for her recovery.

I loved my Protestant Sunday School, but when a teen-ager I began seeking a more demonstrable understanding of God. Through a family friend I learned of Christian Science and was given a copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. I read the chapter "Prayer" and, after a few pages, said to myself, "This is for me." Then I began at once to study each day the Bible Lessons in the Christian Science Quarterly and to attend church services and Christian Science lectures. I loved the Sentinel. I have had an almost perfect record of health and am most grateful.
