Early in the year 1913 I began to read the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. As I read the Preface and the chapter on Prayer I began to be grateful that there had been someone who was spiritual enough to write such a book. In one short hour I had learned more about God, and how to reach Him in prayer, than I had previously known through all my religious training.

Curiously enough I did not expect to be healed, although I was greatly in need of it; but as I continued to read, several physical conditions which had not yielded to medical treatment began to disappear. A few weeks later a flood swept through our city, the water rising to the second floor of our home, and I was able to use the understanding I had gained to overcome fear, discouragement, and a sense of financial loss. My health steadily improved, although we were exposed to cold and dampness and were without proper food. Up to this time I had not known any Christian Scientists or attended the church services, and the healings I had experienced were the result of reading the textbook.
