About twenty years ago my mother caught a glimpse of the truth of Christian Science and started me in the Science Sunday school. Some years later, when I was left entirely. alone and was feeling very sorry for myself because of my many sad experiences, I began to realize that Christian Science was not like other religions of which I knew. Being a Christian Scientist was not just going to church services and calling a practitioner instead of a doctor, but it meant growth—an unfoldment of the truths about God. It was then I began to live and grow.

Within a year my unhappiness and lonesomeness were completely healed. I found my rightful place. There I was needed, and was happy, with a husband, who is a sincere student of Christian Science, and two splendid sons, who had been reared in Science. Since then our little family of four have had many and varied problems, but we have met them with joy, knowing that we have the only true remedy.

One healing especially is remarkable to me. In the fall of 1933 I developed all the symptoms of a very serious malady, although it was never known just what a doctor would have named it. I was unconscious, and therefore knew very little of the trouble. The family and the practitioner realized the powerlessness of evil so completely that we merely referred to it as a bad dream and never discussed it afterwards. However, it was amusing to see the expressions of astonishment from friends who were not in Science, when they saw me about again.
