Searching for love and a feeling of completeness—and never being able to find it—resulted for me in a broken family, strained relationships, divorce, and illness. I felt there must be something more than what I was seeing. Prayer and religion had always been a part of my life since childhood, but they did not satisfy. After studying many different religions, I gave it all up and did not allow God or religion to be discussed in my presence; I would just leave the room.

At a very crucial point in my life, when everything fell apart and I suffered a nervous breakdown, a friend shared Christian Science with me. She left a copy of the Bible and Science and Health, which were marked for that week's Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly. The lesson was on the subject "Love"—just what I needed!
