"A sense of God that spoke to the heart and mind"

Who couldn't use more light, more clarity in a time of questioning? And if we are in the middle of our own search for light, it sometimes helps to hear the experiences of other "honest seekers for Truth." Science and Health, p. xii. This column records some experiences that may be useful to those who are looking for new answers. The accounts are anonymous in order to give authors the opportunity to talk freely about earlier lifestyles and attitudes considerably different from what they now value. Of necessity, the recounting of experiences is telescoped in its time frame, and these narratives do not attempt to tell a complete story. But they do show something of the wide range of seekers and the way in which the light of Christ, Truth, restores, redirects, and regenerates lives.

My mother grew up in the hills of West Virginia, a coal miner's daughter. My father was from another country. They were not married. There was no real evidence of respect or love for each other. I never saw my father treat my mother very nicely. There was a lot of abuse—verbal, physical, emotional.
