As a child I was always considered delicate, and as I grew up I had bilious attacks, constipation, headaches, indigestion, and trouble with my eyes, and was continually taking medicine for something. I had what the doctors called brain fever, and later on typhoid fever. About this time I met a friend on the train who told me about her healing in Christian Science. It impressed me very much, and I felt I should like to know more about this religion; but I did not begin the study of it then. My mother was a Bible student, and I grew up in the Sunday school and church; but I had never been satisfied with my understanding of the Bible, so had laid it aside, thinking I did not understand it.

Then my health became worse, and the doctor said I had a fibroid tumor and must be operated on in two weeks, or I would not have the strength to go through an operation. It was then I remembered about Christian Science, and decided to have treatment. My healing was slow, for I had much of self-pity to overcome. Strength was my greatest need, but I soon learned that God is my life, my strength, my all. I went about knowing that I lived, moved, and had my being in Mind, Spirit, not in matter.
