Sometimes one's consciousness is flooded with light, so strong a light that words fail to express it. So it is with me when I look back and think how helpful Christian Science has been to me; how it has lifted me out of despair; how it has comforted me; how it has been a guide to me always, when I have turned to its teachings!

Before writing more about benefits received, I want to try to say a few words about my admiration for so upright a woman as Mary Baker Eddy. I am forever grateful that she had the perseverance to record for us the way of the Christ. In her book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" there seems to me to be found all that one requires to raise one's thought out of the chaos of today's thinking into spiritual, right thinking.

I have had to bring up four children alone. Christian Science came to me through a friend who, when she saw my sorrow, despair, and bewilderment over the seeming injustice that had appeared in my life, asked me to go to a Christian Science church. The service was peaceful and consoling to me. My two youngest children, who were too young for Sunday school, went with me. Soon the elder of the two went with the two eldest to the Christian Science Sunday School, and I had the youngest with me at all Sunday morning services. He was two years old when I started attending the Christian Science church, and he always sat quietly. I cannot express what a joy and rest it was for me to know that while I was refreshed by the service, the children were well taken care of. Later I felt and still feel a gratitude I cannot express for this tuition during their growing years. There they received what no gold can buy.
