A way to begin

When you don't know where to turn or what to do the Bible offers clear direction and practical help.

During my young adulthood, I was searching for answers. I can't tell you how many television talk shows I watched, how many radio talk shows I listened to, how many books I read on self-help. But all these "how-to" methods, although sincere and direct, left me discouraged.

At that time in my life everything was so tangled, I couldn't foresee how it could ever be unraveled. I was alone, raising three children. In addition to my feeling that I had miserably failed because of a divorce, the little business I had started declined to such an extent that there was no longer any income. How to feed my family and how not to lose our home became problems of overwhelming proportions, and I didn't know how to master them. Then I was introduced to Christian Science and found a way to begin.

"To begin rightly is to end rightly," Science and Health, p. 262. states Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. I was led to study the Holy Bible and Science and Health, assured that my sincere questions regarding God and my relationship to Him would be answered by a thorough perusal of these two books.
