I am so filled with gratitude to God for Christian Science that I cannot go on keeping my joy to myself, but wish to share it with others.

For years I had been suffering a great deal, both mentally and physically. No matter which way I turned I saw the devouring flames, such as greed, will-power, destruction, lust, oppression, aggression, pride of power, and other evils. Being surrounded by these evil qualities I found my thoughts turning from love to hate, revenge, sickness, sorrow, depression, and discouragement. In this state of thought I went on for some years, until finally I cloud see nothing but death to free me, as doctors could not help me any more.

At that time Christian Science came to me in the following way. I was engaged in business; and a small body of people gathered above my store every Wednesday evening for services. I could not hear or understand anything that was said or done; but I always felt uplifted during the time that I thougth they were praying, and my thoughts turned to them then rather than to my business. One day a lady said to me, "I am going to church this evening." I did not hesitate to ask her what church she was attending; and she very lovingly replied, "Why, upstairs, right over your store, the Christian Science church." I then asked her to take me along with her, and she did. At the end of the service I said to myself, "This is what I need, and hereafter I shall not wait for anyone to take me." I turned completely to Christian Science for help, and the first week bought a copy "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy and studied it for many days and nights, for to mortal sense I was a complete wreck.
