Anita loved to sing hymns in Christian Science Sunday School. Mom said her voice was good and strong, and she could be a fine soloist one day. Anita especially liked "'Feed my Sheep,'" a poem by the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, that is set to music in the Christian Science Hymnal (see Nos. 304–309). She had other favorite hymns, too. Singing them made her feel close to God. She was praising Him for all His blessings.
At school, tryouts were being held for soloist for that year's music festival. Even thought Anita liked singing so much, the thought of doing a solo in front of a lot of people made her nervous. She was afraid that she might rattle the sheet music or that her voice might shake. She wanted to try out, but fearful thoughts kept bothering her.
When Mom got home, she and Anita had a good talk about the tryouts. They also talked about what Anita's class had discussed in Sunday School the week before. The class had studied Mrs. Eddy's statement from Science and Health "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need" (p. 494).
