When I was a young mother, my husband and I were divorced after only three and a half years of marriage. He could not seem to support us, and had a problem with alcoholism. Responsibility for the support of myself and the children fell upon my shoulders. I wanted to join a church, to get close to God, to find solutions to the challenges. For some reason I felt my mother would not rest until I visited her church—the Christian Science Church. I decided to do so and then tell her I didn't like it. My thought was completely closed to Christian Science. But when I attended a service, never had I seen a more sincere congregation, one more wholly intent upon hearing God's word. It was the congregation's wholehearted attentiveness and worship of God that reached me.

I began to study Christian Science and then joined a branch church and The Mother Church.
