I have no doubt, nor has my family, that I owe my health, and even my very life, to the truth revealed in Christian Science. In 1902 I suffered the first attack of what was diagnosed by three physicians as intestinal catarrh. For three years the attacks occurred with great frequency and severity, until in the summer of 1905 I was a worn, suffering, despairing invalid. The physician who was in daily attendance told my family I probably would not live until autumn.
My mother had been for several years a student of Christian Science. She had studied alone, with no opportunity to attend church services or to have the encouragement of practitioners and Christian Science friends. I was touched by her patient devotion as she nursed me, and resolved to go to see a practitioner, that she might feel after I was gone that everything possible had been done for me, and so not be troubled by vain regrets. I went with no hope or expectancy of healing. When I reached the home of the practitioner I was so weak that I had to rest upon a couch before I could talk to her. I went out from that home with the conviction that I was healed, and that a new life of joy and opportunity lay before me. There had been awakened in me a desire to study, to investigate this new truth. At my request I continued for several weeks to visit the practitioner, that she might guide me in my study. I saw that I must, myself, maintain the harmony which had come to me. The days seemed too short as I read eagerly the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Then I turned to the Bible. Could it be that I had all these years been so blind to what was therein? I read the New Testament through in a few weeks and found that Science and Health was indeed a priceless "key" to it.
As I studied and the truth unfolded to me my strength returned, and I gained rapidly in weight. I discarded the diet list I had followed for months, and took no thought for my food. All fear of relapse disappeared, and in two months I was able to return to my work in the public schools. This healing has been permanent.
