While growing up I attended a Christian Science Sunday School, where I was introduced to Christian Science and taught spiritual truths. I enjoyed it when I went, liking the different Bible stories and meeting other kids. But as I got into high school, I lost interest in Sunday School and stopped attending. I began drinking and participating in the types of immoral behavior that often entice young people. I became very depressed and felt empty and alone.

Then I hit a low point in my life—everything seemed to go wrong, and I was very down on myself and quite uneasy. (I did slowly taper down on my drinking habit as I met some new friends.) I began to do some soul-searching after a while, and read some Sentinels that my mother gave me. I really enjoyed them, but did not fully understand everything I was reading.
