Had it not been that Christian Science was presented to me in my late teens, I probably would have become something of a frustrated idealist. Although brought up in a home where the Bible was loved and we were taught to obey the Ten Commandments, it was impossible for me to reconcile the concept of a good God with the inharmonious conditions I saw in the world. I longed to understand God's real nature and to know how truly to follow the teachings of Christ Jesus. Becoming acquainted with this Science brought a spiritual blossoming in my life.

Five or six years ago, while going down some steps near my home, I fell and severely injured my arm. A passer-by helped me back to my apartment. I telephoned a Christian Science practitioner and asked her to pray for me. Immediately the pain began to lessen. It was a Wednesday and, although I was not able to be at my regular ushering post at church that evening, by Sunday I was able to teach my Sunday School class. No one was aware that anything had happened.
