Several years ago I was what is called a semiinvalid

Several years ago I was what is called a semiinvalid. For fifteen years, like the woman of Luke's gospel, I had spent all my living on physicians, but to no avail. An operation was said to be my only chance for recovery, but fond parents and a loving husband strongly objected to this course. Various sanitariums, hospitals, and faith cures were tried, but they brought no relief. The world seemed a blank, and many days I left the house hoping never to return.

I had prayed and prayed to a God whom I loved, and wondered why He did not hear my prayer, when lo, one day the subject of Christian Science was broached, and my husband, who that day had conversed with a friend concerning it, remarked to me that it must be a wonderful religion. He then told me of the healings that had taken place in this friend's family through its teaching, and I listened in awe; but not once did the thought occur to me that I might be healed or benefited physically. I requested some literature, and found each article referred to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. This book, as I learned, contained the fundamental teaching of Christian Science, so a copy of it was procured.
