Prisoner's life transformed

I am writing to tell you how much I appreciate knowing and living the teachings of Christian Science. I grew up in a warm, loving Christian home with church as a major part of my life. Still I had questions. As a teenager I wondered if religious commitment as I knew it really touched the depths of the sermons and Bible studies and songs I heard.

After I was married, I continued my traditional religious preference, and then drifted into a world I was told I could never leave. This was an abusive relationship that lead to an avalanche of problems and finally to prison and to overwhelming changes. My survival tools were the Bible studies and memories from my childhood religious teachings. But the horror continued for many years. Finally, after many years of isolation from family and eleven years of exile from anything I was familiar with, I ended up in prison. There I attended religious services, and I was taking part in every group I could squeeze into as I tried to put my life in order. I felt empty, numb. I was overwhelmed from the years of trauma and betrayal - and now prison!
