Christian Science was introduced to our family when I was seven. Thus I had the privilege of attending Sunday School in Paris until I was 20. It was there that I learned to love the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. The spiritual understanding I gained that intelligence is divine was a great help in high school and at university, and also in my first job as a lecturer in museums--and then as a teacher of history and geography.
My husband and I took class at the same time, and after that I dedicated one afternoon and a couple of evenings each week to the practice. A few years later becoming a listed Christian Science practitioner was a natural unfoldment and the result of prayer. The same desire to serve God and to help my neighbor led me to the 1985 Normal class.
Being a member of a branch church and serving in several positions,including Second Reader, member of the Board and teacher in Sunday School, has helped me grow spiritually and has been the source of many blessings. It was also very rewarding to have been a Christian Science lecturer for five years.
