I wanted to know more

As a teenager I began to question my family’s religion. My mom had not been raised in a religious household. When she married my dad, she agreed to worship in the church he attended. My brother, sisters, and I were given instruction in that faith. While I loved the beautiful church with its stained-glass windows, I became increasingly uncomfortable with some of the doctrines and began to find excuses not to go to Sunday services. My parents were not happy about this, but Mom did say I should find a way to worship that would keep me close to God, as she had. I had not studied the Bible, but did love the book of Psalms, especially Psalm 23. I visited many different churches, looking for one that presented God as the Good Shepherd.

In my early 20s I married someone who had been raised as a Christian Scientist. We did not talk about religion much, but he owned a small leather case with two books in it. One was the Bible. I had never heard of the other, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
