My mother, who for many years was under a doctor's care for heart problems, passed away in her early fifties. Several years after that I looked into Christian Science and discovered it paralleled my thinking in many ways. I was particularly encouraged by Mrs. Eddy's opening statement in the Preface of the Christian Science textbook: "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings" (Science and Health, p. vii). What a thought-provoking definition for God—"sustaining infinite."

The first spiritual healing I had came about one afternoon after I had thoroughly studied only the first four pages of the book, looking up the definition of every word I wasn't sure of, and then reading and rereading each paragraph until the real meaning penetrated my understanding. When I told the friend who had introduced me to the book what had happened, she remarked in good humor how healthy I'd be when I finished the whole book.
