I wish to express something of the gratitude I feel that Christian Science was brought to my knowledge, and for the blessings it has brought to me and mine. It was not through a desire for physical healing that I took up the study of this Science, but because I always had been very much dissatisfied with life and was searching for something that would explain it and make it seem more worth living. My father was an agnostic, so the family was allowed to grow up without any religion. I had the firm belief that there could be no such thing as a Supreme Being, and that death was the end of everything as far as the individual was concerned. There seemed to be no logical reason for living, yet here I was.

Through the patient, persistent, and loving efforts of friends, over a period of some ten years, I was at last brought to see that Christian Science offered a better explanation of life than anything of which I had heard. I found that Mrs. Eddy explained God in a way that I could understand and accept, and, what was more, use in my daily life. The Bible still meant nothing to me, but I studied "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy because I was finding that its statements were provably true.
