When Christian Science was first brought to my notice...

When Christian Science was first brought to my notice through the healing of my mother I was nineteen. I needed no special physical healing at that time, but after it began to dawn on me that Science is the truth, then fear, sensitiveness, lack of self-confidence, and limitations of all kinds were gradually overcome. A quick temper was eradicated with the realization of the truth of these words from Psalms: "Be still, and know that I am God."

The overcoming of fatigue was one of my first healings. On coming from work one day, completely tired out, I found that there was supper to prepare at once. However, I sat down for a moment, opened Science and Health, and found this message on page 217: "The scientific and permanent remedy for fatigue is to learn the power of Mind over the body or any illusion of physical weariness, and so destroy this illusion, for matter cannot be weary and heavy-laden." I got up, prepared the meal, and was on my feet continually until bedtime, with no feeling of fatiguw whatever.
