Twelve years ago, when Christian Science was brought...

Twelve years ago, when Christian Science was brought to my attention, I would not read the literature or converse on the subject. Three years later I was in poor health and greatly depressed and discouraged. I had been a Bible student all my life, implicitly believing it to be the inspired Word of God and that it contained the truth, and I had been a church member many years, striving faithfully to lead a consistent Christian life, yet in my need I failed utterly to find God a very present help in trouble.

While in this condition I was led to attend a lecture on Christian Science, the first ever given here. While listening to this lecture I felt that Christian Science was what I needed, and I went to see a practitioner, who told me to read Science and Health for a few days before having treatment. I bought a copy and began to read it, and was healed at once of sleeplessness, and very soon of chronic stomach and bowel trouble, also of severe headache, etc. From that day to this I have never used any material medicine, nor have I ever needed help for any bodily ailment, but have been well all these years through the understanding that in God is my health. When I was healed I felt that old things had passed away and all things had become new. I severed my connection with my former church and joyfully united with First Church of Christ, Scientist, in our city and also with The Mother Church in Boston. I was very happy walking in this new way when suddenly great sorrow came to me. Those who were nearest and dearest to me were taken away, and I said with David, "I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me."
