In 1932 I experienced for the first time the great blessing of turning to Christian Science. I had been ill with grippe three times in succession, and was left with a persistent head and neck difficulty, so that for nearly a year I was unable to work, and thus lost my position. None of the three doctors who treated me could heal me. My taking the cure in a mineral-bath health resort recommended by the doctors resulted in the very opposite of a healing, as did also treatment by a hypnotist.

When my brother invited me to turn to Christian Science I at first declined. In extreme distress, however, I later took up some copies of The Herald of Christian Science (German edition) which he had given me. I read them through with increasing attention, and became convinced that I had found what I had long been seeking, namely, the true concept of God. I asked a Christian Science practitioner for help, which was lovingly given. I shall never forget how during and after the first treatment God's omnipotence and omnipresence became tangible to me and unutterably lovely. I relegated to the rubbish pile all medicines and so-called tonics. After but a few treatments I was so far restored and freed from fear that I could again apply for a position; and in a relatively short time a satisfactory one opened for me.
