I grew up in a home where religion was never discussed

I grew up in a home where religion was never discussed. As a young adult I longed to understand my relationship to God and to find a church whose teaching I could accept. I clung to the promise in Jeremiah (29:13), "Ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."

For several years I had periodic attacks of asthma. When these occurred, I had to sit up in order to sleep, as I could not breathe lying down. After one attack, a neighbor brought me a copy of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I knew nothing of Christian Science, and so I did not know that it heals, but I was very glad to have the book. After I'd read it during that entire day, I knew that this was the religion I was seeking.
