I became interested in Christian Science after my marriage to a student of this Science. We attended church and I began reading Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy from time to time. But I must admit that my understanding of what I was reading was at most superficial, and I was believing what I read one moment and becoming totally skeptical the next. I wasn't looking for a healing or searching for a deeper spiritual understanding of life, nor was I pausing in my reading to consider the truths being expressed. But shortly an incident occurred that brought a deep desire to understand God better.

My husband was completing his university studies at the time, and I was happily employed on the same campus. One day, as I was returning to the office from lunch, I was waiting to cross the street at an intersection. Suddenly I was overwhelmed with a feeling of indescribable fear. I couldn't relate the feeling to any particular thing; it was just fear. I felt as though my entire personality had changed in just those few seconds.
