I am very grateful to God that through His loving guidance I was led to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I did not read Science and Health because I wanted to or because I desired to learn anything about Christian Science. In fact, I had been convinced by false rumors about it that it was nothing that I needed or wanted. However, at a time of great sorrow, anxiety, and nervous strain, when physicians had given the verdict that my mother had but three months at the most to live, she turned to Christian Science for help. As she was able at that time to read very little for herself, I read Science and Health to her, and although at the outset I did it merely as a duty and was confident that it could not help her or be of any interest to me, I soon discovered that I was reading it eagerly, with a great sense of peace and comfort, and that I was finding the religion that I had been groping for and so much needed. Besides this, I saw Christian Science doing for my mother what no material remedy or treatment had been able to accomplish.

Through the understanding gained by reading Science and Health I was able to lay aside glasses which I had worn for years for muscular trouble that specialists said even glasses or an operation could never wholly relieve. Christian Science has made me understand, enjoy, and use the Bible as I never could before. It has shown me that God is a loving Father-Mother, a help and a guide in all things. I am very grateful to have found a religion which is not merely something to be believed, but which is understandable, practical, and capable of proof, a religion which can be used in every detail of daily living.
