Language fails when I attempt to tell of the many benefits which Christian Science has brought to me. While I did not seek it for health, that was found; for I found God, and where God is there health abounds. I did not seek it for strength, but found that also, for God is our strength. I did not expect to find happiness, but it was awaiting me, for I found that peace "which passeth all understanding."

Several years ago I commenced the study of Christian Science to see if it would lift me out of a condition of mental darkness bordering on nervous prostration, caused by the sudden and seemingly tragic death of a brother who was on his way to meet me. I turned to the Bible for consolation, but found none, for my former teaching had been so different concerning death that it held God responsible. Although I had been attending the Christian Science church about a year, I had not purchased the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, not knowing the storehouse of knowledge it is. I was advised to do so, and in less than a month this condition was lifted from me, a condition of sleepless nights and days of agony, of such chaos mentally that even the sunshine and flowers and the wonderful scenery of the country through which I was then traveling seemed to mock me.
