My family were ready and eager to help me

Although I attended a Christian Science Sunday School until the age of seventeen, I still did not feel that Science was effective for me, despite evidence I'd seen of its practicality in my family. During my childhood, when there was a need for healing or comfort, my father often quoted this verse from James (1:17): "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." Christian Science is indeed a precious gift from God, but I had to see this and prove it for myself.

After I entered college, I began to make my own decisions about things. One of these was to stop attending Christian Science Sunday School. But gradually, physical and other problems came into my life, until eventually I was treated for mental illness. Although this condition was presumed healed by the doctors, I did not feel that the medical treatment had accomplished its purpose.
