From Judaism to Christian Science

It is over ten years since the seed of Truth was sown in our midst. We were born of Jewish parents, and brought up in the strictest observances of the orthodox Jewish religion. Our mother passed on when we two were young girls, and from that time we felt convinced that there could be no God in the world. Sorrow and separations followed—a veritable wilderness. We two went to attend the University of Michigan, hoping, through intellectual attainment, to satisfy our longing for something better and higher. We little dreamed that it was the Truth that was leading us; for at that time we had never heard the name Christian Science.

While attending college, one of us sustained a serious internal injury, which prevented her from continuing her work. When the physicians, who were specialists on the university faculty, passed the verdict that nothing but a sugical operation could relieve her, and that nothing could entirely cure her, one of her professors, who was at that time taking a course in Christian Science, suggested her going for treatment to his teacher, a loyal student of Mrs. Eddy. Within two weeks she was perfectly healed and thereby we knew for the first time that there was a living God.
