Before I knew anything about Christian Science I was...

Before I knew anything about Christian Science I was very unhappy. While still attending school I was told that I had been born on an unlucky day; that I never would be lucky, nor would I live to grow up. I took this so much to heart that I was never happy, and as a matter of fact I was never well. Very early in life great fear, from which I suffered terribly, chiefly at night, befell me and was the greatest hindrance to me in every way. Since the age of fourteen I had suffered from discordant heart action, rheumatism, and colds.

Four years ago I decided to go to Geneva to visit some dear relatives, and among other things I told them of my suffering. They began to talk about Christian Science and about an all-loving and all-powerful God; and that there were no unlucky days, because every day was God's day. For the first time in my life I was wonderfully comforted, and I shall never forget it. A load fell from my heart. Soon afterwards my relatives sent me a Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and I began to read them diligently. Very soon, too, I found work near Geneva and attended the church there on Sundays; and it was lovingly explained to me that I too could become very happy.
