I became interested in Christian Science during a period in my life when I felt fairly well satisfied with the religion I was studying. Then I met my husband-to-be, who was a student of Christian Science, and his religion fascinated me. I had many questions about the relationship of God and man, which had not been answered to my satisfaction. Christian Science answered these questions, and an understanding of the teachings of Christian Science came naturally for me. Since that introduction to Science, my family and I have had many wonderful healings through relying solely on God.

Shortly after I was married, I found employment in the area where we had just moved. However, I had a hard time with the other employees, and I felt I was being treated unjustly. I was not seeing my fellowman as the child of God, and within a year I lost the job. I then asked a Christian Science practitioner to help me gain a clearer sense of my unity with the Father. After two months of prayer and study of the Bible and Mrs. Eddy's writings, I found new employment and was much happier than I had been before. During this time, through my efforts to see others as truly God's children, I was healed of the need to wear eyeglasses.

When I was expecting our third child, I began working with a practitioner to gain a better awareness of God's presence, and to understand more fully the child's true, spiritual identity. We discussed why we study Christian Science—to feel closer to God, not simply for material results, a fact that became very clear to me at that time.
