I would probably have studied Christian Science sooner...

I would probably have studied Christian Science sooner had I thought I needed it physically, for I did not then recognize it as anything but a means of healing disease. My mother had been healed of a fever about twenty years before, and I thoroughly believed in the healing efficacy of Christian Science. I did not, however, understand it, for the very good reason that I had not taken the trouble to read Science and Health or any other Christian Science literature.

When my little girl was old enough to go to Sunday school, I saw very clearly that I must decide whether she should have Christian Science teaching or go to another Sunday school of which I had been a member. By this time I had gained enough understanding of Science to know that I would not be satisfied to have her taught in the old way, so I decided to take up the study of Christian Science in earnest and send her to that Sunday school. It is about seven years now since I began the study of this teaching, and my only regret is that I did not take it up a great deal sooner. It has proved a help in all times of need, restoring harmony in every case, whether physical illness or merely the every-day trials that seem to come to all housekeepers.
