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.
