By the grace of God

I was raised in the Christian Science Sunday School but drifted away after high school during the social upheavals of the ’60s. After a decade of experimentation with elements of the counterculture, I began searching for a better sense of identity and purpose. 

I met my husband in group therapy, and we started a family. I briefly took my young daughter to the Christian Science Sunday School, but I didn’t form an enduring bond with the church. Yet I continued to be a spiritual seeker. I read books on personal growth and took courses that I hoped would lead to lasting happiness and confidence, but nothing did.
