Christian Science was first brought to my attention more than twenty years ago. While spending a summer near Boston I met a Christian Scientist, who asked me if I should like to attend a testimony meeting at The Mother Church in Boston. I went with her out of curiosity; I knew nothing at all of this Science. The Wednesday evening meeting impressed me very much, and a testimony heard there prompted me to obtain from a public library a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and to read it. A year later my interest in Christian Science was revived, and I bought a textbook of my own, and still later I became a member of a branch church; but for a number of years I made little progress in the study of this Science, because I was more anxious to obtain physical healing than to gain an understanding of God.

I had a wonderful healing of partial deafness, a condition which had appeared as a result of influenza during the war, and which troubled me for over a year before the healing was complete; but in spite of this proof of the efficacy of Truth I did not realize all the blessings that could come through Christian Science. Finally, about five years ago, I realized more keenly my need of this Science; and the practitioner who helped me lovingly pointed out that if I wished to be healed I must study the truth. I have always been so grateful for this awakening, since it led me to membership in The Mother Church, to class instruction, and to greater co-operation in church work.

For the last two or three years I have had two little children in my charge, and am more grateful each day for the help and inspiration which Christian Science gives in caring for and training them. At one time, one of the little ones was ill, but through my study and the help of a practitioner she was quickly and completely healed.
