Words are inadequate to express the gratitude I owe Christian Science for the good it has brought and is bringing to me each day. Being by nature full of care, emotional, and sensitive, I did not find in the religious teaching I had received anything that met my heart's aspirations or answered the troubled questioning about human woe. I therefore thought it was only by intensifying my work that I could follow Christ, and by trying to drive away the evil thoughts that attacked me. It soon came to me that I was busying myself intellectually instead of remaining calmly at the feet of Jesus to receive spiritual teaching.

Following upon this overwrought sense I fell seriously ill in April, 1914. Medicine only made me worse. I believed that God alone would be my Physician, and patiently awaited His help. I spent a year in isolation and silence. The least noise, the least movement, reading, an effort to think, even the slightest attempt to take food, produced an indescribable sense of suffering. Rest improved my health, but was far from bringing me healing.
