I heard of Christian Science for the first time in 1911 through a friend, and it made a great impression on me. I had been brought up very religiously, but in later life had completely lost faith in a God who, I thought, was good and bad at the same time, and who was supposed to send so much sorrow to mankind. I, however, had always had a longing for something higher, and so gladly accepted the teachings of Christian Science.
At that time we were moving to the country, and unfortunately I had little opportunity to study this teaching, especially as my relatives were strongly opposed to it. It was not until August, 1927, when I felt that a serious illness was developing, an illness which manifested itself in pains in my breast and a badly swollen neck, and which grew worse for weeks, that I realized that I could not get well through medical aid, and that God alone could help me. I was also very much afraid of an operation, which I thought was inevitable. When my relatives began to urge me to do something for myself, I did not turn to a physician but to a Christian Science practitioner, whom I asked for help, which was at once lovingly given. After the first treatment I felt a decided improvement, and after three treatments I was healed to such an extent that the lady doctor whom, since my husband wished it, I was obliged to consult, could find only a slight swelling of the thyroid gland. This, too, has disappeared, and since then I have been perfectly well. All discomfort has disappeared.
