Deep gratitude for the innumerable blessings which Christian Science has bestowed upon me, and a desire to share with others some of my experiences, prompt me to send my testimony for publication, with the hope that another may find encouragement therein.

Christian Science had been offered to my family when I was very young through an aunt who wished to interest my father in it, but he had refused to listen. Later another relative brought a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy into our home asking my mother, who had lately come home to convalesce after being at a hospital, to pick it up occasionally and read a statement or two wherever the book opened. It was I who followed her instructions, for at about twelve years of age I read almost everything I could get hold of. This book fascinated me because no matter where I read I could not understand what I was reading, which puzzled and attracted me. I could not help wondering about it and pondering over what I read. Later my brother became interested in Christian Science through a friend at high school and at one time he told me, "You will never be happy until you study Christian Science." We had no church affiliations in our home.
