My mother became interested in Christian Science when I was a very little girl, so that from that time it was my privilege to attend the Christian Science Sunday School. However, even with this, I had to prove for myself the great value of Christian Science, and learn that it alone is my rod and staff. After leaving college I accepted the temptation to believe that certain social habits and indulgences had pleasures to offer which the high standard of Truth denied; and from this compromise I went literally into the depths of darkness and suffering. Yet I am most grateful that in spite of all the rather bitter experiences through which I had to go, I could not lose my grasp on Science, nor did divine Love cease to give guidance and protection until it forced me to the realization that the high standard of Truth does not restrict, but brings complete, joyous liberty. It was through these trials that I found true joy.

I have had many healings through the application of Christian Science. A misplaced vertebra went back into place without pain, when the unreality of matter and the allness of Spirit were declared.

One day while I was walking on the rocks at the shore I slipped and suffered a severe injury to a kneecap. A practitioner was called, and later that evening a physician was asked to make a diagnosis. He said that it looked like a very serious injury and that I should be taken immediately to the hospital for X ray, but he agreed to wait until morning. When he came the next morning he was able to move the kneecap quite easily and said that something very wonderful had taken place during the night. No X ray was necessary, nor did he offer to put on the splints which he had brought. Through the loving, tireless work of the practitioner I received a clearer sense of Mrs. Eddy's statement on page 96 of Science and Health, "Mortal error will vanish in a moral chemicalization." When I came to see that we must persevere unto the end of all error through the unfoldment of the Christ, Truth, my progress became more steady and the way more joyous.
