As a last effort to save my six-months-old son I turned to Christian Science, and telephoned to a practitioner, asking for help. From the time of my son's birth I had failed to find a food that would agree with him, and he had not gained in weight since that time. The doctors held out very little hope, because I had had influenza and pneumonia three months before the child was born. As soon as I obtained Christian Science help, the baby was instantaneously healed, slept peacefully for four hours, and from that time on digested whatever food I gave him. Today he is a big, strong boy of nineteen years.

This experience convinced me that there is great value in the spiritual law revealed in the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. Although I had previously been very much opposed to Christian Science and to Christian Scientists, I immediately began to study the textbook to learn the important truths it held. However, although I prayed earnestly for guidance in the care of my son, and turned only to Christian Science for his needs, I did not apply this Science to my own needs for many months. After I began to apply it to my own problems, I passed through a number of difficult experiences—some of which were very unpleasant—while the whole condition of my life was being changed to a new and better one. It is now plain that the solving of each problem forwarded the dropping off of error and the taking on of greater good.
