Over eighteen years ago, after losing our young son, and after I had undergone several minor operations and a major one was looming up, I was led, after much contempt for Christian Science, to say to my husband that if I had that book by Mrs. Eddy, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," I believed I would read it. Although not interested in Christian Science, he secured it for me, and I read it all one Sunday. By night I began to realize how very much I had all my life wanted this beautiful religion, and the understanding of God and my relation to Him. I had been praying and reaching out for God and did not know it, and this was how the Father was answering me. That night I prayed that I might have a vision of the Father, even as Saul did; but what came to me instead was a "still small voice" saying with the Psalmist, "Be still, and know that I am God." This brought me a great measure of peace, and my joy was so great that I wanted to share it with the whole world.

When our second child came, there was much doubt as to whether I should recover, because of so-called laws which said that I could never have another child. Although I was only young in Science, the birth of the child was much more comfortable than was expected. For a period of years I could not follow Christian Science entirely because of opposition to it in my family, but finally took my stand ten and a half years ago; and it has been both my physician and our daughter's ever since. Once, when in New York city, my husband telephoned me that our daughter was quite ill with bronchitis, and that my mother in her great fear had sent for a physician. I told him to see the physician, explain my preference for Christian Science, and get a Christian Science practitioner, all of which he did. Then I immediately left New York for home, and when I reached there late that night, after an eleven-hour trip, found her well and happy.
