In the years that have followed my first healing in Christian Science I have continued to grow more and more grateful. I have felt this gratitude not alone for the restoration to health and normal activity, but especially for the great truth that Mrs. Eddy has given to the world.

As a college student I pursued various subjects, such as philosophy and psychology, dealing with the realm of thought, hoping to find ultimate truth; but in every case I was disappointed by the admission of the instructors that, after all, we were working with theories and not proven facts. A few years later, when I was suffering from a nervous breakdown and incipient tuberculosis and the doctor's orders forced me to withdraw from active participation in the work and play of the world for several years' complete rest, I was thrown entirely on my own resources. Though I had been reared in a Protestant religion, I found no way to pray and no faith within myself that prayers would be answered. I began to reach out for some system of mental therapeutics, but remained scornful of what I supposed Christian Science to be. These systems afforded no satisfaction; and having to be away from my home and husband became, after two years of idleness, a keen punishment.
