Interested through Reading Science and Health

I have heard it argued that all who come into Christian Science become interested through the healing. I did not become interested through a desire for healing, but through reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." It explained the Bible so that I could understand it. I could not understand it previous to reading Science and Health, although I had tried to do so. I was also very much impressed by this fact—that Christian Scientists practised their religion as well as preached it.

After learning of the benefits to be derived from this beautiful Truth, I had a great desire to be able to help others who needed the help Christian Science could give. With this thought I began to read and study Science and Health. After several months, I was healed of a disease of five years' standing. Besides taking many kinds of patent medicines, I had been treated by several of the best physicians, and seemingly helped at times, but never healed until I was healed through the understanding of the Truth. I have had many demonstrations of Truth over error, and feel that I have much for which to be grateful to our Leader, as the one who has searched, and found, and shown us the true way.
