For many years I was a student of the Bible and an active worker in the church, but I was always in poor health and believed that God sent sickness to His children to prove to them. His love, for the Bible says, "Whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth." I worked on and my health got no better, but I felt God wanted me to do greater work for Him than the work at home, so I prepared to be foreign missionary. When I had the college study and part of the medical study completed, I was in a very bad condition financially, and could read very little on account of weak eyes. I was taking seven kinds of medicine for stomach, bowel, and heart trouble, the latter said to be organic, and with continual pain in my head and side I thought I had no friend anywhere. I studied medicine to learn of a way to cure my many ailments, and I worked in religion to save myself from eternal torture.

My need was great in these many respects, and I wondered if there was a way of delivery for me. Yes, when I was fully ready, Christian Science found me. My physical healing was slow, but the change could be noticed from week to week. I was very anxious to follow the instructions of my practitioner, so I stopped taking medicine at once. Then I studied the text-book carefully, and soon saw that Science and Health would teach me the way to know God, the author of all harmony.
