Christian Science came to me at a time when I was very unhappy and all that I held most dear had failed me. Repeatedly I had had bitter experiences with human love and friendship: those I loved failed me; and each time as I turned elsewhere for happiness I met only with disappointment. Then I began to doubt God and to have many bitter thoughts. I gave up going to church, as the religion I had been brought up in was no help to me. Nothing seemed reliable. It was then that my thoughts were directed towards Christian Science. I feel I can never be sufficiently grateful for the way my footsteps were guided during this searching period. One day some one showed me "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and there indeed I recognized the truth. As I read, sometimes being able to understand only one sentence in a whole page, I found God, — real, reliable Love; and I began, too, to know man as God's image and likeness. So I soon had a very different concept of friendship and love for mankind. Bit by bit all bitterness went. Now I can look back and be very grateful for all I seemed to suffer, for it brought me to know real happiness.

While I did not come to Christian Science for physical healing, yet during those first months after I started to study, I was cured of a complaint that had been a constant trouble to me as long as I can remember. Unless I frequently took medicine it seemed as if I were always having liver and bilious attacks. All sorts of mortal mind laws seemed to hold sway over me, but with the study of Christian Science all this entirely disappeared. When this diffculty left I do not know; it just vanished with my growing understanding of God and reality. How can one ever be sufficiently grateful for these healings, both mental and physical!
