It is nearly fifteen years since I began to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I did not take up this study for physical healing; I was searching for spiritual enlightenment. At that time I was very unhappy over my concept of God. While I had everything materially to make me happy, it was what I believed He might do in the future that caused a sense of discouragement, limitation, and fear to be always in my thought. I can never tell the sense of joy, happiness, and hope that came to me when I first read Mrs. Eddy's wonderful statements concerning God: that He is good, and does not send destruction, affliction, disease, and death. During the first few months of my reading, many healings took place.

I was so interested in the book that I had forgotten about time, when one day my husband called my attention to the fact that I had not had a sick day, and was so much happier, since I began to read Science and Health; and he expressed a wish that I should never give up reading the book. Among the physical healings that I realized had taken place was freedom from sick headaches and nervous ailments from which I had suffered as long as I could remember. Since then I have relied upon the teachings of Christian Science to overcome all inharmonious conditions that have arisen in the family; and I always hold to these words in Science and Health (p. 167): "Only through radical reliance on Truth can scientific healing power be realized." I should like to state that I have never been obliged to call on a practitioner for help for my family or for me.
