When Christian Science came into my life I was very unhappy, my home being very inharmonious. After I had a serious operation which did not help much, the doctor attending me thought I might have to undergo another. At that time Christian Science was offered to me by a friend, and I went to a Wednesday evening testimony meeting. I knew then that I had found that for which I was looking. My friends drove me home, where I found my baby having a severe attack of convulsions. She had been having them frequently, and the doctor was unable to do anything for her. I immediately asked a practitioner for help, and the baby was healed instantaneously. I was so grateful for that healing that I bought a copy of Science and Health at once and began to study it faithfully. During this first study of the book I was completely healed of acute indigestion, from which I had suffered for many years, also of appendicitis and spells of melancholia. Many times I would have such serious attacks of the latter that the thought would come to me to destroy myself, thinking thus to end it all.

Some time later I had a complete breakdown. Some members of the family who were opposed to Christian Science called in a physician, who said I had pleurisy, double pneumonia, heart trouble, and many other things. I was compelled to go to a sanatorium, but I continued to have Christian Science treatment. After spending over four months there, I was discharged, the doctors saying they could do no more for me. After I had been home for a while the visiting nurse from the sanatorium called on me, and when she saw how I had improved, she told me that although she did not have me on her visiting list, she liked to call to see the wonderful way I was improving. She also said that she knew it was my religion that had done it for me. I was very grateful for this opportunity to prove God's power. I should like to mention that one of the doctors at the sanatorium told me he was reading Science and Health, and said, "There are wonderful healings done in Christian Science."
