All the time before knowing anything about Christian Science...

All the time before knowing anything about Christian Science I seemed to have a hungering and thirsting for something I had never found in the religion of the so-called orthodox church. When I began to read the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, I knew what it was I had been seeking,—to know God as He is, as Life, Truth, and Love. I could begin to understand this text which I had read so often: "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price." My heart has been filled with gratitude ever since.

When this wonderful truth was brought to me by a dear friend, I was almost an invalid. I had had gripped every spring for fifteen years. I would be in bed four or five weeks at a time; then it would take me the rest of the year to recuperate from the nervousness and weakness, until it seemed I was in a very bad physical condition. My husband lovingly supplied me with patent medicines as well as those recommended by different physicians, but with little benefit. I remained so weak I could not attend to my household duties or care for my children. After reading the textbook and "Miscellaneous Writings" I noticed that when the much-dreaded time came I had forgotten the grippe. Through the reading of these books I was completely healed of chronic headaches, sore throat, weak eyes, and nervousness, and I was able to work and care for my family as I had not done for years. It was then I saw that Christian Science was remaking me, enabling me to put off the old man and to put on the new.
