Before I was led to Christian Science, I had many ills

Before I was led to Christian Science, I had many ills. The aftereffects of jaundice and gallbladder attacks gave me a great deal of trouble, and a valvular defect of the heart, pronounced incurable, plagued me constantly. I envied every person who was able to live without medication, because I believed I had to take various kinds of medicine all the time, although they proved ineffectual.

In my youth I often gave thought to the nature of existence and our creator. In those days I was attending a Protestant church in my hometown, but I didn't find any satisfactory answers in the pastor's sermons. As a pupil in my last year of secondary school, I continuously endeavored to be with other Christian young people and to take part in various church-related events. Still, I didn't find what I was searching for.

Yet my efforts to learn more about God continued, and many years later, well after I had established my own family, I was led to Christian Science in a wonderful way. I found that this Science was the very truth I had long yearned for, and that one could make use of its teachings in all situations. I was deeply grateful for having found what I had searched for all my life!
