I was raised as a Christian and was taught that adversity should be willingly endured, since everything in life, good or bad, is sent by God. But the events I encountered during World War II exceeded my mental and physical endurance. I lost my husband, my homeland, and twice lost all my belongings within a few years. Caring for three small children and taking on hard work I was not accustomed to discouraged and depressed me, and I became severely ill. I was sent from one doctor to another, and was taking medicine constantly.

It was then I heard about Christian Science through an acquaintance. I asked her whether she had something I could read to find out about this Science. The very next day I had a copy of The Herald of Christian Science in my hands.
