Answers that fully satisfy and deeply bless

When I was in middle school, I began asking deeper and deeper questions about God. I had been given a Bible, which I revered greatly, but I didn’t really understand it, although I loved the psalms and parts of Isaiah.

Every evening when I was a young child, my mom would recite the Lord’s Prayer and a little poem I later discovered had been written by Mary Baker Eddy called “Mother’s New Year Gift to the Little Children” (see Poems, p. 69 ). I loved this, but otherwise I was left to seek answers on my own; I knew nothing about Christian Science, Mrs. Eddy, or the church she established. I asked my mom to take me to various churches, where I would ask questions about God of anyone who would answer. Yet there was never a response that made complete sense to me.
