It was not from any physical need that I became interested in Christian Science, but from a profound desire to know more of the Bible, and to have it for my daily companion. Although I had had some knowledge of Christian Science for nearly ten years, and had witnessed some of the help my friends were constantly receiving by its application, it was only after the following experience that I began to give serious consideration to this new-old truth which has since so blessed my family.

My husband and I were on an automobile trip with some friends who were Christian Scientists. On the first morning I went to our friends' room to awaken them. Much to my surprise, I found them reading the Lesson-Sermon found in the Christian Science Quarterly. I was asked to join them, and as I listened, I knew that I was listening to the truth. The following day was the first Sunday in the month. We all attended the morning service of a Christian Science church. Never shall I forget that service, nor the reading of Article VIII, Section 1, of the Manual of The Mother Church, which says in part: "In Science, divine Love alone governs man; and a Christian Scientist reflects the sweet amenities of Love, in rebuking sin, in true brotherliness, charitableness, and forgiveness." I saw that these Godlike qualities were indeed reflected in the faces of those about me.
