Spiritual learning

I came into Christian Science as a result of my parents’ search for God. It was in Nigeria, where they were, humanly speaking, poor and uneducated and were struggling to raise a family of six children. My parents were often sick and always somewhat disillusioned about life’s prospects.

Because my mom wanted to be able to read the Bible, she enrolled in primary school classes that took place at night, after a full day’s work. Her deep love for learning spurred her on. She graduated from high school and went in search of a church that would teach her the right way to worship God. She had no clue as to where to find what she was looking for, nor was she absolutely sure that what she was looking for really existed, but she kept on.

Our family would often attend different churches. As time went by, things started to improve for us, and my dad joined us in the search. One of the churches we visited was run by a minister who shared metaphysical truths from his pulpit. This was different from anything we’d ever heard before. It was such a wonderful time in our lives, and we enjoyed it very much.
