My mother was a Christian Scientist several years before I became interested in its teachings. Although I witnessed the transformation of her life from one of ill-health and sorrow to health and happiness, I was so blinded by materialism and its seeming pleasures that I could not grasp the verities of this grand teaching. I had served in the capacity of amanuensis and assistant to the leading oculist of our city for several years, and could not conceive of a spiritual remedy for the ills of mankind. I first began to study Christian Science for peace of mind, and received such an abundance that I finally gave up all medicine and looked to God for help form all my physical ailments as well. I was first healed of dyspnoea, which physicians claim to be a lack of nerve supply to the lungs, and they do not profess to do more than alleviate it by material means; then of a supposedly incurable disease of the scalp. In the two and a half years that I have tried to live the life of a Christian Scientist I have not been compelled to be away from my work more than two days on account of ill health. Prior to this time I would throw myself upon the couch immediately upon getting home from the office, because of fatigue, while now I hardly know what it means to be tired; I have learned what it means to cast my burdens at the feet of divine Love, "and bear a song away," The study of Christian Science has broadened me and I have developed marvelously in every way. For all this I am very grateful.
