Many students of Christian Science have testified that their first insight into the truth was received in entirely unexpected surroundings. In my own case, I was traveling on a New York train when a young woman, a stranger to me, observing my anxiety while going over a dangerous curve where an accident had recently occurred, casually remarked, "You should realize that God is ever present;" and then, at my request, she followed her observation with a statement of her faith in Christian Science. While I failed to grasp the full significance of her belief, yet her evident sincerity and enthusiasm prompted me to commence reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and to attend the services and lectures. Before completing my first reading of the textbook an incident occurred which greatly strengthened my faith and encouraged me to continue its study.

I had suffered from violent headaches, the sort that completely distract and for which materia medica does not afford even temporary relief. They would continue from six to ten hours. While in the throes of one of these I tried to apply what had been gleaned from the textbook, merely a few precepts I was able to understand. The headache instantly left me. At the same time there came over me a serenity of mind never before experienced. This occurred in the presence of my husband, who was nonplussed by the suddenness of the demonstration. Other healings followed in quick succession, and I soon became thoroughly imbued with the teachings of Christian Science. Then came what may perhaps be termed a real test.
