An eagerness to learn about God

When I was about twelve, I went to a friend’s home to ask if he could come outside to play. He said he couldn’t because his family was taking him to church. My family never went to church, and I distinctly remember thinking, “I don’t go to church. What do I know about God?” I realized I didn’t know much and was curious, feeling as though I might be missing something. 

I was interested in knowing more, but I was never sure whom to ask, since neither of my parents talked about God. So my receptivity stayed dormant for about five years. Then my mom found a copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy in my grandmother’s home. My mom knew nothing about Christian Science and decided to visit a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, to learn more about the teachings of this religion.
