In April, 1931, I was spending a holiday at home with my parents, and they told me of Christian Science, with which they had recently become acquainted. I read various passages in Science and Health, but came to the conclusion that Christian Science was not for such as I, the mother of four small children. However, to please my parents, I attended a Wednesday evening testimony meeting, I regret to say with a strong feeling of criticism. On entering the hall I was immediately impressed with the happy faces around me, and I sat listening to the testimonies in astonishment. On my return home, my attitude towards Christian Science was entirely changed. It seemed to me to be the most wonderful religion of which I had ever heard, and I resolved to find out all I could about it.

On returning to my home town, however, I encountered great opposition from my husband, which resulted in unhappiness for both of us. In spite of this, I could not give up my study of Christian Science, and I knew harmony would be restored in God's own way. The following August our eldest little boy, aged seven, was suddenly found to be suffering from tuberculosis. Our doctor and a specialist pronounced his case very serious, and strongly urged us to send him to a sanatorium, for his own sake and because of the other little ones.
