Harmony restored in the home

In one of my annual Christian Science students’ association meetings, my Christian Science teacher mentioned that there must be commitment before there can be conviction. Learning more about God is a joyful journey, and several years ago, I committed to deepening my understanding of God. 

During this period of enhanced study, most of my free time was spent reading Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, studying my notes from Christian Science class instruction, filling my thought with ideas shared in the Christian Science magazines, and praying daily with ideas from the weekly Bible Lessons outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly

One morning, my husband, who is not a Christian Scientist, got extremely upset with me over a spiritual insight I’d shared. He reacted in outrage, saying that all I had been doing lately was reading “that book!” (Science and Health). He said he no longer had any desire to go with me on a planned vacation the following week—and even went so far as to ask me if I wanted a divorce because maybe I was “too spiritual” for him. He remarked that he didn’t even know me, as I had changed.
