Christian Science was brought to my family's attention by a man who was a newcomer to this teaching. He was so overjoyed with a recent healing he had had, that he wanted to share his joy with others who were in need of healing. My stepmother had been suffering for some time with a back injury. She sought the help of a Christian Science practitioner and was healed at her first visit with the practitioner. After that, some of our family members began to study Christian Science.

At the time, I was in my midteens, and as I began to read the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I had the feeling that here was a book that could help me find answers to my questions about life and the reason for my existence. Whenever possible I attended a Christian Science Sunday School. I always had many questions, and looking back on that time I realize that they were all questions probing the nature of matter.
