There was a time in my life when I questioned God and Christian Science

There was a time in my life when I questioned God and Christian Science. Previously, I had found great comfort through this Science during a period when my marriage broke up, my children were seriously affected by drugs, and there were financial difficulties to be met. But I felt I had been placed in a mental wilderness of loneliness and frustration. I loved Christian Science too much to turn away completely, and I knew I had to make a decision about where to put my trust. Mrs. Eddy's clear statement (Science and Health, p. 392), "Your decisions will master you, whichever direction they take," caused me to pause and examine the roots of my faith. I made the decision to follow God with all my heart.

My whole life has been revitalized. I emerged from the doubt and fear to a satisfying and fulfilling commitment to companion with God. My home now is full of peace. Progress is evident in overcoming false character traits. My family are making gains, and several of them have returned to the study of Christian Science—becoming members of a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, and having Christian Science class instruction. I have found rewarding employment and am joyously active in branch church work.
