It was approximately twenty-one years ago that a gentleman, who was not a Christian Scientist, recommended that I "read the chapter on Prayer in Mary Baker Eddy's book," to which I replied that I was not interested. My mother, at that time recovering from a critical illness of many months, heard the conversation and asked me to get the book from the library. She at once recognized Science and Health as containing the truth, and, though weak and emaciated when she began, through reading it was soon her normal self.

About a year later I began to read the textbook and attend church with my mother. Then came into my human experience a very great sorrow, when all I held dear, except my mother, was swept away. I was guided into a course that enabled me to support my mother and myself. Then came the healing in four days of a severely sprained ankle, of toothache, constipation of many years' duration, arsenical poisoning in my mouth, and hernia for which I never had treatment. My mother was healed of incipient blood poisoning, a severe heart attack was overcome within a few hours, and she was resuscitated and restored when she was found helpless and almost unconscious from natural gas fumes. She received a complete healing of a fractured hip when injuries resulting from an accident were pronounced fatal by two examining surgeons. Under Christian Science treatment she bore her weight on the injured leg and walked in six weeks. During this experience I was most wonderfully guided, and supply, including a Christian Science nurse, came to us in a most unforeseen way.
