As a little girl in a home where no one went to church nor was God ever mentioned, I pored over old Bible pictures. My deep need to know God remained unfulfilled for many years. But when Christian Science was presented to me by a close friend, I borrowed Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy from a public library and drank it up like a thirsty child. I never doubted the truth of what I read, no matter how little I understood it. My childlike trust in God has never wavered, and my gratitude for the lifework of our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, is boundless.

As a new student of Christian Science many years ago, I was healed of the smoking habit. This desire left me suddenly when my yearning to be a branch church member became more meaningful to me than the habit. I have also had healings of flu, burns, bee stings, bladder infection, restlessness, and sorrow over past mistakes.

The cherished event of class instruction did much to awaken me to ever-present good. That God satisfies our human needs has been proved to me over and over again. A variety of church appointments required me to overcome timidity and selfconsciousness; I am grateful to have served wherever I could.
