I am awed when I look back and see what divine Love has done for me, and for some time I have had the desire to tell the public my experience with Christian Science. It was not physical healing that brought me to the truth, but as far back as I can remember I experienced a great desire to be loved, and when at an early age I united with the church, I was not satisfied with the result of my Christian endeavors. I labored on for some time in blind belief, then grew weary and gave up all effort to live as I thought a Christian should. I wanted to live a good life, but did not know how, and when a great sorrow came to me which almost destroyed my mental faculties, I was as one alone on the shores of time, "having no hope, and without God in the world."

I went on in this miserable state for some months, and finally I decided to seek relief in pleasure and any other material means that promised to drown the sorrow with which my heart was breaking. But, alas, all material means failed, and it was at a time when I was very much discouraged that God led me among Christian Science people, and I was induced to look into its teachings for help. It was not, however, until I saw love expressed in the lives of two dear Scientists that I began to realize it was a reflection of the Love that is God, that for which I had so long been looking. Then I began in earnest to study "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and slowly but surely the light came to me.
