When Christian Science came to me I was suffering physically, mentally, and financially. Having gone through five operations, I was looked upon by everyone as a semi-invalid, and I certainly felt the part. I was spending at least three days a week in bed, during which time I could retain no food, not even water.

I read my Bible often, but it gave me little comfort, except the fifteenth and sixteenth verses of the ninety-first Psalm: "He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation." I would meditate on those two verses by the hour and feel comforted. I felt that God was standing by and would see me through the trouble and sickness.
