"The sharp experiences of belief in the supposititious life of matter, as well as our disappointments and ceaseless woes, turn us like tired children to the arms of divine Love. Then we begin to learn Life in divine Science" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 322). These words, written by Mary Baker Eddy for the benefit of all mankind, I can substantiate. Although Christian Science has been my lifelong religion, there were a few years before and after college when I drifted from this Science because of laziness, childish curiosity, and a desire to live a little on the wild side. During that time I turned to doctors and read material on psychology to get me through various physical and mental distresses. Yet medical means and psychology proved ineffective.

With pain and despair pushing me all the way, I returned to the arms of divine Love. There I was rescued! When I learned that the promises of matter were empty and that spiritual joy was a definite possibility, healing came—many healings. Some occurred quickly, others more slowly; but they all gave me spiritual enlightenment and a solid foundation on which to build.
