I have always been a lover of the Bible, and as a result engaged actively in church work, and was a Sunday school superintendent for ten or twelve years. I had however such poor health that I finally got discontented and discouraged and gave up church and church work, but I asked God to help me. This was all my prayer until Christian Science found me. Through frequent visits to schoolmates of my former days, who are now Christian Scientists, I was induced to investigate this teaching. I bought a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, also the Quarterly, and began to study. My first impressions were that it was only one who was very near to God who could have written such a book. My health began to improve, my business began to improve, I was bettered in every way. Then one by one I procured Mrs. Eddy's other writings, until I have nearly all, including the Concordance to Science and Health. I also take the Monitor

It is now about seven years since I began to study, and I have read little else. How to prove the allness of God, good, in the face of seeming evil was a difficult problem for about five years; then, as I began to understand God's spiritual creation and saw that man must be spiritual and perfect, thought was enlightened, and a higher consciousness reached. It was like opening the door to the spiritual universe, where "Love is impartial and universal in its adaptation and bestowals" (Science and Health, p. 13). I like to dwell on the thought of a spiritual universe pure, perfect, sinless, without limitation or monopoly, and desire most the companionship of those whose consciousness has ascended to the Father.
