Christian Science has been indeed the answer to my deep desires. About ten years ago Christian Science came to my notice, and it found me a most miserable creature, filled with superstition and fear; but with it all, there was a longing to know God better and to serve Him with my whole heart. This longing seemed to get stronger and stronger. Later I went to work in a practitioner's home, knowing nothing of Science, however, as I had been brought up in the Baptist faith. One day, when the way seemed dark and I was depressed, I was working around the desk of the practitioner and struck one of his books, as if by accident. It opened to page 66, and the book was "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I felt impelled to read the following: "Trials teach mortals not to lean on a material staff,—a broken reed, which pierces the heart. We do not half remember this in the sunshine of joy and prosperity. Sorrow is salutary. Through great tribulation we enter the kingdom."

The truth contained in these words seemed to throw a great light in my path. I became interested in reading the book, and from that time on I have been fully at one with the wonderful teachings of Christian Science. I have had help through its practice in every way, and feel that I am an entirely different being from the one who read those first light-giving and life-giving words, ten years ago.
