'A treasure map' to Truth

One hot and humid summer day in July 2011, I was riding my bicycle down the streets of Pensacola, Florida, in search of employment. I had been out of work for many months and was living in a homeless shelter at the time. As I rode, I felt directed to walk into the local Christian Science Reading Room.

On this special day, God’s love was reflected by the attendant when she gave me a copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. After a pleasant conversation, I thanked this woman for showing me such kindness. Soon afterward, I began reading the “little book” (see Science and Health, p. 559). I read it in the city parks, in the day labor halls, and at night in the homeless shelter. I could not stop reading it, realizing what I actually had was a treasure map leading me to God—Life, Truth, and Love.
