My introduction to Christian Science came as the result of following up on this invitation from an aunt: "If I give you a book, will you read it?" The book was Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. I do not now recall what passages I first read, but I do remember that when I read them, I knew Christian Science was what I had been seeking.

There was no branch Church of Christ, Scientist, nearby and therefore no Sunday School for me to attend, so I began studying the weekly Bible Lessons outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly. The first testing time came not long after. My ears began to ache—a problem I had suffered with periodically since early childhood. But I was confident that I could be healed through my newfound understanding of God. Still I felt very alone and longed for help from my aunt, who lived in another city. Since it was impossible to reach her at the time, I turned to Science and Health for my help.
