Finding the perfect man

Originally appeared on

“I had wanted a man in my life,” a senior friend of mine was saying. We were talking about relationships. Years ago, she was a single woman, very involved with her career as a journalist for about 20 years, when she began to feel the need to marry. The problem was she just couldn’t find anyone she really liked. Every time she dated, there was always something wrong with the match.

Finally she decided to call a Christian Science practitioner to help her pray about the situation. The practitioner, who knew her family history, made a discerning statement: “You have accepted a disappointed sense of manhood.”

We'd love to hear from you!
