Eight years ago last Christmas I turned to Christian Science...
Eight years ago last Christmas I turned to Christian Science for healing, and since that time every day has been a Christmas to me. For years I had been subject to violent headaches. Each time I would have to call a physician, and would be in bed for several days. On this day (which was Christmas eve) I began to manifest a headache. A few days previous I had noticed the name "Christian Science Reading Room" in the telephone directory, and the thought came to me: Why not try Christian Science? It was the "still small voice." No one had spoken to me about it, and I knew nothing whatever about Christian Science; but I went to the telephone and called the Reading Room. The librarian gave me the names of several practitioners, and I selected the one living nearest to me. I called her, told her of my trouble, and asked her if she could heal me. She said, "No, I cannot; but God can." Then she told me about God, a God so different from the one I had been taught to fear! She told me of the God who is Love, the God who is always present and who has all power, the God who is "a very present help in trouble," who "healeth all thy diseases." Then she asked me to read the ninety-first psalm.
When I hung up the receiver the headache was gone. I had never been so happy in my life. I read over and over again the ninety-first psalm, and each time I read it, it became more beautiful. The day after Christmas I purchased a copy of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and began to study to find out more about God and about man in His image and likeness.
