When Christian Science came to me there was an immediate healing of sorrow over the loss of a child. My desire for this new-found joy and peace was so great that no time was lost in getting to a Christian Science reading room and applying for "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and the other writings of Mrs. Eddy, which were read in quick succession, and with the reading of each came the desire to own the book. The sense of calm which was then mine was such a contrast to the previous thought of restlessness and sorrow that though it seemed hard to understand all I read, I knew without a doubt that this is the truth, the promised Comforter, and that I would some day understand it all.

Up to that time we had been in missionary work and had been trained to believe that the lack of this world's goods was a condition accompanying in very large degree consecration to God's service, hence the cost of Mrs. Eddy's works at first seemed high, and more than I could afford, but very early came some realization of the falsity of such thinking and the all-sufficiency of God. The understanding that God has enough to supply all good to all soon brought little by little, in the most unexpected ways, the means to purchase one book at a time until all of the writings of our Leader, as well as the periodicals she established, were provided for me in the space of a few months. I did not realize at the time that this was a truly scientific demonstration of supply, for I had very little understanding of the letter of Christian Science, but the joy that all this was mine was unlimited.
