The miserable life I lived prior to my healing through...

The miserable life I lived prior to my healing through Christian Science is a story of sin and despair, and let me say right here, that these words of St. Paul's are the beacon which is my salvation: "This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." I was a great traveler, contented nowhere, seeking peace in different cities, but finding none. My chief aim was to beat the railroad companies out of their just fares, and such things as that did I strive for, never seeking to help any one or to make any one happy but myself. Not one good thing did I seek after, all was evil.

Now all this is changed, and I truly feel as if I had been born again. Since studying the Bible with Science and Health as its key, I am striving more each day to put self in the rear; striving for other people's happiness; striving to be honest and pure, and to overcome sin in every form. Christian Science is surely a blessing, for that and nothing else has superinduced this changed condition.

I have for a long time wanted to write and tell something that my mother said shortly before she passed on. It was to me a most startling statement. She came into Christian Science late in life. She had raised a family of nine children, and some of them, especially myself, had caused many a gray hair in her dear old head, yet she said, after she was past sixty-five years of age. "If I could know Christian Science, I would be willing to live my life over again." —E. J. Myers, Chicago, Ill.
