In March, 1914, I became interested in Christian Science

In March, 1914, I became interested in Christian Science. I was depressed, weary, tired, and discord seemed so great in my home that I felt there was nothing to do but ask God for help. I prayed He would send the Holy Ghost, the Comforter, to us all. Next day a lady asked me to attend a Christian Science lecture, and while listening to it I felt I should never take medicine any more—all desire for it left me. Although I did not know it at the time, I had an instantaneous healing of chronic stomach trouble. I had been on a diet for two months, but that night ate a hearty supper, then went to bed and slept as I had not done for years. Then I knew Christian Science was what I needed.

The following day I opened the Journal given me at the lecture and looked up the address of the nearest practitioner. At that first visit to the practitioner I found peace such as the world cannot give or take away, peace for myself and for those in my home. The uplift was beautiful, and I was straightway cured of a skin disease of ten years' standing. Since then I have been healed of bronchial catarrh, and have never had to stay in bed an hour or keep indoors on account of illness. I can go out in all kinds of weather in peace and safety.

I have had many proofs of God's protecting power and am very grateful for the character building one gains in Christian Science. Words cannot express all I feel,—the love and gratitude I owe for some understanding of Christian Science. I am deeply grateful to our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for giving us this glorious truth of "on earth peace, good will toward men," and to all those who help us in preparing the Lesson-Sermons and the periodicals, from which I am learning more every day that God is Love. I am thankful for the knowledge that God is our Father, and that He sent His Son Christ Jesus to show us the way.
