When, about thirteen years ago, I first had in my hand our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, I remember that although I understood very little of it, I could hardly keep from reading it and something indefinable drew me to it.

A year later I was in need of help, mentally as well as physically, for I felt so depressed that the thought of suicide haunted me. In my despair I went to see a practitioner. When she explained Christian Science to me, I felt a great joy flow over me, and from that moment nothing could make me doubt that I had found the right way leading to Truth.

Having been brought up in the Protestant religion, I had quite a good knowledge of the Bible, but many things were obscure to me until our textbook made them clear. As a child I often had asked why the teachings of the Bible were not put into practice, and whether they were to be taken merely as a beautiful theory almost impossible of application in our present state of existence. Christian Science, of course, changed that point of view; and today I am happy to give this testimony of gratitude.
