I turned to Christian Science because of the wonderful works I saw accomplished in my family. I had seemed to lose God and all hope in religion; but when I began to study our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, I knew I had found the truth and was completely satisfied. My first healing was of severe headaches which occurred frequently, and for which every remedy I had tried had failed. After I had been studying Christian Science a few months a headache came on and I at once went to my room and opened Science and Health at page 390. How long I read I do not know, but I went to sleep and woke perfectly well. About three months later a headache started again, and I turned to the same divine remedy, with the result that I have never had a return of the trouble. I realized, too, that a change had to take place in my character before I could gain this healing. Among many healings I have experienced I am especially grateful for two recent ones which medicine had failed to cure, and for which I am thankful to God beyond expression.

I am also deeply grateful for membership in The Mother Church, for class instruction, for a better understanding of God; also for a much greater and fuller appreciation of the wonderful life, works, and example of Christ Jesus, which makes me love him more every day; and to Mrs. Eddy for the purity of thought which enabled her to receive the revelation of Christian Science, and for her life of love and self-sacrifice in giving it to the world. I am so grateful for the desire to study the Bible in the light of Christian Science, and for the privilege of studying all our Leader's inspired writings.
