The two books that changed my life

I began to find the answers to all the questions I had that nobody had been able to answer.

The two books that changed my life—the Bible, and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy—came to my attention a decade ago at a time when I was facing physical and emotional challenges that had begun early in life. 

As a child, I attended a parochial school in Uruguay. I was very introverted, which created problems for me with my classmates and teachers. As a teenager, I found that my social and emotional problems inhibited my progress as a student and created difficulties in my interactions with others. 

General frustration led to anger toward my parents, my classmates, and all the people I knew. That’s when my problems with stomach ulcers and gastritis began. At the same time, my father, who was the breadwinner for the family, which consisted of my mother, my father, and me, became ill and could no longer work. It was decided that I should go to work.
