It is now over seven years since I first heard of this healing truth. While teaching school I boarded with a lady who was a Christian Science practitioner, and merely to find out what this religion was, I began asking questions. To my astonishment I found I was being relieved of a load which I had carried since childhood,—the fear of eternal punishment, not so much for myself as for my loved ones. My happiness in finding such a new—old truth knew no bounds, for I was simply a different person ; I was free.

I studied Christian Science for a few months, then to please my parents I gave it up, and for five years lived without it, trying to find peace and comfort through the old thought, but never being satisfied. Something always made me think of Christian Science with a longing to take it up again. I had kept my copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" in my trunk all this time, and one day I took it out and began to study it anew. From that day to this there has been hardly a day when my husband and I have not read the Lesson—Sermon together. We live on a farm, and often we have found the power of Truth "a very present help in trouble," for the animals as well as for ourselves and our two children.
