I became interested in Christian Science in 1910

I became interested in Christian Science in 1910. At that time my husband and I moved to a distant city, where I became acquainted with several of my husband's relatives, who I had heard were students of Christian Science. They reflected so much love and kindness that it was forcibly impressed on my thought, and I readily saw that they had something I did not have. As time went on my respect for their religion grew, since they lived it, never talked it; and I became rather curious as to what Christian Science taught. I then made acquaintance with another lady who was also a student. She lent me "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and I read the book eagerly.

I had not been feeling well for some time, and I earnestly prayed that if Christian Science was true God would send someone to heal me. Withing an hour a lady knocked at my door and I knew instantly that God had sent her, as she had the same happy and loving expression my relatives had. I did not ask her errand, but drew her into the room and asked her if she was a Christian Scientist. She said that she was a Christian Science practitioner. Needless to say, since then the children and I have had many wonderful proofs of the efficacy of the truth as taught in Christian Science.
