In Christian Science I have found the truth

In Christian Science I have found the truth. For two years previous to investigating this subject, I had become cold in the church of which I was a member, but felt that the fault was with myself. I went to the meeting hungering for more spirituality, but came away unfed. I prayed fervently that I might receive the truth, for I knew it was somewhere, and I should seek and find it. Just at this time another religion was presented to me, the followers of which seemed very happy and harmonious, but I could not quite accept it. I was hungering and thirsting after righteousness.

All this time I kept up my work as teacher in the Sunday School, seldom missed morning service or young people's meeting, also met once a week with a society of the King's Daughters, and quarterly with teachers at Social Union. Besides this, other meetings and socials kept me with the church people all my spare moments after business hours. My prayer was surely answered in Christian Science, but it seems that I was forced to accept it.

I had been doctoring and taking medicine continually. Finally I was taken suddenly ill and could not leave my room for about two months, then I went away for three months, thinking that I should come back and be able to continue my work. I improved very much, but the fear of quick consumption was with my doctor and my family and friends, and I was warned about the coming winter. Only too soon the fear manifested itself. I had worked just three weeks when all the pains and aches returned, and I had to go to bed as soon as I got home, so there was no pleasure in living. My employer advised me to see my physician, and said perhaps I should not work that winter. I then and there turned to Christian Science. I could not afford to give up work and live away from home, neither did I want to depend on doctors and medicine any longer. I was in despair.
