When Christian Science came to me I was in mental darkness and much in need of the Comforter promised by Christ Jesus. I had no hope and was "without God in the world." The fear of death had gripped me from early childhood. Not being able to find God in the orthodox churches, I was wonderfully led to Christian Science. I knew from the very first reading of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, that I had found the truth for which I had been searching for years. What a different view of life it gave me! What a comfort to know that God, good, is Life and that this Life is eternal; that the mortal sense of life with its pains and sorrows is but a false sense of life! What a wonderful book the Bible became to me, revealing to me the real loving Father-Mother God, who does not cause His children to be sick and die in order to experience health and happiness!

I found a demonstrable religion in Christian Science, for I could prove God's love, His nearness. I began at once to express a more abundant life in health and peace. A few of the healings experienced by my son and me were those of insomnia, tonsillitis, adenoids, abscessed teeth, colds, influenza, headaches, lumbago, burns, boils, injuries. I have also had protection from accidents. Some of these healings were brought about through my own understanding, while others were brought about through the help of practitioners. Insomnia was healed just by reading our textbook. I am more grateful than words can tell for the preventive and curative power of Christian Science.
