It is over eight years since I became interested in Christian Science...
It is over eight years since I became interested in Christian Science through the healing of both physical and mental troubles. For some years previous to this I had suffered severely, and kept getting worse until my whole system seemed to be out of order. Along with the rest was trouble with the eyes, and headaches. I had followed my doctor's instructions as to diet faithfully, till I found myself wondering if there was anything at all I could eat. An optician said I should get glasses at once, that I would have to wear them steadily. I wore them about two and a half years, and could read but a few minutes without them. I was most unhappy and dissatisfied over becoming such a physical wreck, and also because I could get no help either physically or mentally. I longed to know God, and had many times consulted with my pastor on this subject, telling him how dissatisfied I was, but he always said that I wanted to know too much. I had come to the place where there seemed to be nothing left but death, and no hope of anything beyond that. I was afraid to go to sleep and afraid if I did not sleep, and very much afraid when I learned that my brother with whom I lived was anxious about me.
In this condition of fear—almost despair—I came to Christian Science, to see if there was anything in it for me. I felt that there surely would be, since it was both Christian and Scientific. I told the practitioner my story, was given a treatment, and was to return the following evening, at which time I would receive a copy of the text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. I remembered the following morning that I had not mentioned anything about my eyesight, but I felt sure that if God could heal me of other ailments, my sight could also be restored. I was treated that evening (Saturday), took my book home, and read five or six hours on Sunday without even thinking about glasses or feeling the slightest need of them, nor have I ever needed them since. My sense of spiritual sight was restored, and when my brother came to my door on the fourth evening to ask for me, I was able to tell him that I was the most comfortable in mind and body that I had been for years; that I felt such a sense of safety, and was not afraid to go to sleep. The other ailments yielded more slowly, although from my first treatment I ate whatever was set before me. In a few weeks I was healthy and well, and able to do my work. My healing dated from the 16th of April, 1897. Four weeks later I was told by my brother that I looked ten years younger.
My home has been in Winnipeg, Man., all along, and my opportunities have been many to tell others of my remarkable healing, of my present health, and of my entire reliance on Christian Science for all I have and am, all praise being due to our much-beloved and revered Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for showing us how to regain man's inheritance.
