I can remember as a young girl questioning why nobody healed as Christ Jesus said we should. I had never heard of Christian Science, but even as a child I felt something was missing from Christianity if there was no healing. After I was married and had two children, my desire to know God became fervent. I wanted more than anything else to teach our children the highest sense of what is right. I studied several religions.

About this time my uncle learned of Christian Science and gave a copy of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, to my dad. He and my mother became interested and soon mailed me a copy. My first attempts at reading Science and Health were unsuccessful. In fact, one day I got so discouraged I put the book aside; but I respected my parents and my uncle, and I saw that they had derived a great sense of love and peace from Christian Science.
