Christian Science came to me, through a demonstration...

Christian Science came to me, through a demonstration in our family, at a time when there were many doubts and misgivings in my thought as to the divine order of things. While I had always been quite a close student of the Bible, I was prone to interpret it literally and to note seeming contradictions; in fact it was fast becoming to me a sealed book and I was taking a more material view of life as a result, and found more discord was manifested in my daily experience, until the morning usually found me awakening with doubts and fears and wondering what great calamity would befall me that day.

I was in this condition, honestly groping for the light but seeing nothing ahead but "chaos and old night," when, out of the seeming darkness, like a beacon light the demonstration above referred to was made. I immediately purchased a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and slowly began to unlearn and empty thought of things material and to fill it with the truth as revealed by our Leader. The process was slow and there were many misgivings but I am so grateful that through Mrs. Eddy's teachings and the Bible I have been led out of a wilderness of belief into the blessed understanding that, as Mrs. Eddy says on page 468 of Science and Health, "All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all."

About a year later I was called upon to examine a mining property located across the divide of the Rockies. Access could only be had by mountain trail on horseback. I became lost in a blizzard but finally, after many hours of exposure, the horse found its way back to camp. Upon awakening the next morning I found that one side of my face was paralyzed. Fear began to manifest itself, and urged on by my friends not in Science I was rushed to one of the most noted nerve specialists, who pronounced it a form of paralysis, stating there was nothing that could be done and that my face would probably be better within three or four months.
