I was seeking healing

When I first contacted the woman who was to become my Christian Science teacher, I wasn’t seeking class instruction. I was seeking healing.

I was attending college at the time, and had prayed with the support of some practitioners in that area. But my study of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy had taught me that I could be completely free of the problems that were plaguing me—including fear, depression, and low self-esteem—instead of becoming only somewhat better. I felt led to search for a practitioner in my home region, and as I scanned the list in The Christian Science Journal, one name just sparkled. I had never heard of this woman, but I called her and made an appointment to see her in her office. She also happened to be a Christian Science teacher. We had a lovely conversation, and on my train ride home I felt a deep peace and a great hope that all of the problems I was facing could be solved—and they were!
