Christian Science came to me just at the time I was beginning...

Christian Science came to me just at the time I was beginning to feel that because my two children had grown up I could expect to grow old and inactive as gracefully as possible! For the banishing of that awful belief, for the joy of knowing what right activity is, and for the many proofs I have had of the power of Truth, as taught in Christian Science, I have not the words to express my gratitude.

The day I bought my first copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy it seemed that I was too busy to get a moment to read it. At bedtime I picked it up, intending merely to glance at it. I was standing under the light at the foot of the bed, and not until four hours later did I realize I was still standing and what the time was. Nor did I care; for I was full of wonder and joy over what I had read; and from that time to this my greatest desire has been to be faithful to the teachings in that book. Next day, after poring over it, I felt I must help in the kitchen, feeling rather conscience-stricken for having kept so close to the book. On being asked what I was so interested in, I tried to explain what I had been reading, while at the same time cooking bacon. When the bacon was about ready to serve, I accidentally tipped the pan and the boiling fat covered the entire back of my hand up to the wrist. There was not the slightest pain, nor did it leave a blister; only a small round red spot called my attention to it the next day.
