In December 1974, due to cutbacks, I was furloughed from my job as an airline stewardess for an indefinite period. My mother recommended I return to college while waiting to be recalled by the airlines, and I began classes a few weeks later. At this time I was engaged to marry a man I had been dating for some time. Within a month of my return to the university our relationship ended, and I felt hurt and lonely.

Although I had been raised in Christian Science, I was not studying it at the time. One day I picked up a Sentinel and read the testimonies, which gave me a great deal of comfort and peace. Pretty soon I was reading The Christian Science Journal and again studying the Bible Lesson in the Christian Science Quarterly on a regular basis. I found suitable employment and so enjoyed college that when the airlines contacted me to return to work I decided to remain in school.
