After rereading the chapter entitled "Fruitage" in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I decided it was time I added my own words of gratitude to more than a century of accounts of the healing power of Christian Science.
My mother gave me copies of the Bible and of Science and Health when I went away to college, but I didn't open the books at that time. They sat on my shelf until I entered the teaching profession five years later. Then I found I needed much more than a college degree to cope with the problems I was encountering, living alone in a large city and teaching in a job that seemed over my head.
As I look back, the thing that stands out to me the most is how the whole character of my life altered when I commenced studying these two books and attending services at a branch church. There was a complete change in the focus of my life. Money, career, recognition—the things one is tempted to hold dear—just didn't matter that much any more. What did matter was understanding God and my relation to Him, and practicing what I understood of Christian Science in my daily life.
