About twenty-eight years ago, the church in which we were active members was sold. My husband and I then began to look for a religion through which disease, as well as sin, is healed, in accordance with what Jesus taught.

After investigating several metaphysical cults, we were led to attend a Wednesday evening testimony meeting at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Washington, District of Columbia. We felt we had at last found what we were seeking—Christian metaphysics. We studied "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, proving its truths in our daily lives for two years, and then joined First Church. When Second Church of that city was organized, we became charter members of it. In order to serve more efficiently, we sought the benefit of class instruction, for which I am grateful. Our two sons and daughter have grown to manhood and womanhood having Christian Science as their guide and protection, and they are proving that it meets their every need. For the past twenty-five years no medicine has been used in our family. Every problem, whether of sickness, injury, finance, position, or location of home, has been worked out by the application of Christian Science.

Seven years ago, one night in the dark I stepped off the stair landing and fell across a turn in the stairs, striking my back on the edge of two steps. I immediately declared the truth, and did not lose consciousness, although to my husband, who reached me very quickly, it seemed as if I were passing on. Although I thought we could handle the problem, my husband wished to call a practitioner. The fall occurred late on a Monday night. The rest of the night I was kept busy shutting out error's pictures, which tried hard to enter and take possession of my thought. It seemed impossible to move without great pain. In morning, with my husband's help I tried to stand, and we clung to the truth, declaring aloud that God is Life; and the darkness gave place to light. On Thursday I walked up and down stairs twice with very little difficulty; and soon thereafter the seeming effects of the fall, both internal and external, vanished.
