My mother was introduced to Christian Science by a school medical nurse. Mother, herself a trained nurse, followed the recommendation of this woman and borrowed a copy of Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy from the public library. By the time I was born, mother had left the medical profession and had become an active Christian Scientist.

I was enrolled in a Christian Science Sunday School, and from the time I was young I sought comfort and answers to fears and questions about life in the weekly Bible Lessons from the Christian Science Quarterly. A profound fear of death and of separation from loved ones caused me to seek with special fervor for enlightenment. I found peace as I learned more of the eternal nature of Life.
