I feel that I should express gratitude for all the blessings I have received through Christian Science, the first of which is having been taught this Science from babyhood and having had the privilege of attending the Christian Science Sunday School, where so much truth was unfolded.

Not realizing the treasure which had been given to me, however, when I entered a university I decided I had no time for religion and stopped studying Christian Science. Soon I began to worry, to be fatigued, and finally I left, on the verge of a breakdown. Shortly before this my mother had given me a subscription to The Christian Science Monitor and now I began to read the metaphysical articles on the Home Forum page, false pride not permitting me to turn to a study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. The Monitor did its leavening work and soon I was studying the Bible Lessons in the Christian Science Quarterly and reading Science and Health. A complete healing resulted, and the next fall I reentered the university feeling better than ever before. When I took the physical examination required for entrance, organic heart trouble was reported. I asked for help from a Christian Science practitioner, and although there was a little improvement, still the trouble did not yield and I realized that I must work out the problem myself. One day before leaving the Christian Science Reading Room to go to the doctor's office for a required examination, I picked up Science and Health and opened to page 475. These words stood out to me: "Man is idea, the image, of Love; he is not physique. He is the compound idea of God, including all right ideas." The thought came, Then I am not physique, I am the image of Love, and I include only right ideas; a defective heart is not a right idea, so I cannot have such a thing. So complete was the realization that in the next hour the physician found the heart in a normal condition.
