I am very happy to express my gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me. Before I became interested in this Science I seemed to have lost faith in everything. The question that often came to my thought was, Why am I living? It seemed that I was living in a mad whirl, working, struggling, and suffering—and what was the use of it all? Physically I was suffering from what the doctors called double curvature of the spine, with many accompanying nervous disorders. I went from one doctor to another, finding only temporary relief. I finally gave up, with the realization that the doctors could not help me. For about six months I went without any medical aid, then Christian Science was introduced to me.

The first literature that I read was a Sentinel which I received at a lecture. After reading it I went to the library and borrowed a copy of Science and Health. After reading the first page I removed my glasses, which I had used many years for reading and studying. I thought that if, as our Leader says there, "the prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God,—a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love," then I could not have absolute faith in God and keep those glasses on. I have never put them on since.
