Fifteen years ago I was helpless and confined to my bed, suffering from a complication of diseases, including a condition of paralyzed and obstructed bowels, gravel in the kidney, and hemorrhages, all of which had culminated in a nervous breakdown. I was unable to sleep, although taking powerful medicines. At this time my brother came from Boston to tell me about Christian Science. He continued to tell me how I could apply its teachings to my problems. It was not at all clear to me, and I asked him if there was anything I could read in the endeavor to get a little understanding. He immediately brought me the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.

My husband wanted me to give up the doctors and send for a Christian Science practitioner, but I was not ready to take this step until some time later. One day my little girl came to me with a toothache. I opened Science and Health and read to her, and the tooth stopped aching at once. That opened my eyes to the fact that I too could be healed in the same way. I immediately sent for a practitioner, and was healed. All the medicines and other material remedies were thrown out of the house, and I have never used any since for either my children or myself. Nor has there ever been a recurrence of any of the diseases healed at that time.
