I first became interested in Christian Science in 1916

I first became interested in Christian Science in 1916. I attended the lectures and some of the services and read the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy; but I did not feel that I could comply with the demands of Christian Science — "even the surrender of all merely material sensation, affection, and worship" (Science and Health, p. 9). So, during the next three years of half-hearted interest I had many bitter experiences, which culminated in the loss of my home and much that was at that time dear to me.

Through the tender encouragement of relatives and friends I then decided to rely absolutely on God, as revealed in Christian Science; and although there have been many dark days, I have been so conscious of divine guidance that all bitterness has been removed and replaced by that peace "which passeth all understanding."
