Years ago I was able to work out the solution of a business problem with the help of Christian Science. Mrs. Eddy says in Science and Health (p. 7), "The 'divine ear' is not an auditory nerve. It is the all-hearing and all-knowing Mind, to whom each need of man is always known and by whom it will be supplied." This "all-hearing and all-knowing Mind" led me unerringly through great difficulties and helped me to demonstrate the omnipotence of God.

In my husband's office, his one employee was incapacitated due to illness. Although I had learned the same vocation previously, I never loved it. Nevertheless I agreed to help out in this case. Advertisements and other efforts to fill the position were without success. Added to my large household and active church work, I did not find the work in the office easy. I saw it was right to help my husband in this difficult situation. I didn't see it as my personal task but more as a moral obligation. As a result I felt overworked and dissatisfied. Again and again we published notices to find a new office worker, but each time without success. In the meantime, the whole family suffered from our overload.

In the summer of the same year I had class instruction with a Christian Science teacher. I gained thereby a better understanding of Christian Science and also a different attitude toward our business problem. I clearly perceived that my first place was in the office for as long as was necessary for a positive change to come about.
