In the early part of 1923 I was urged by some friends to attend a lecture on Christian Science. I was quite unacquainted with its teachings but was willing to try it. I went into the lecture hall somewhat like Christian in "The Pilgrim's Progress," bearing a tremendous load on my back. I lived in fear of a so-called hereditary disease—consumption—from which I had lost both my parents while I was very young; and I was feeling tired and worn out with the struggle of living and of facing the world almost alone since the age of fourteen. I came from that lecture healed, knowing I had heard the truth. Never shall I forget my joy! I was so up lifted that I seemed to be walking on air. Very soon people, who told me afterwards that they had not expected me to live through the year, were asking me what I had done. Color came into my cheeks, a hard cough disappeared, indigestion and other ills passed from my consciousness.

Since then through the knowledge of the truth which Christian Science has revealed to me I have found my real heritage, and God as Father-Mother. I cannot in a short testimony express the smallest part of the regeneration which has followed my earnest study of the Bible, Science and Health, and the Christian Science periodicals. I have been lifted out of work which I had been forced to undertake owing to lack of the necessary money for a definite training, and have been led through Christian Science to take on better and more congenial employment. I found the statement made by our Leader on page 128 of our textbook wonderfully true: "A knowledge of the Science of being develops the latent abilities and possibilities of man. It extends the atmosphere of thought, giving mortals access to broader and higher realms."
