Christian Science came into our home when I was a child, healing my mother of a serious organic disorder and equally serious and chronic catarrhal condition. Kind physicians and specialists had failed to cure her after many years of effort, and finally told her there was nothing more they could do. At that time, taking medicine was one of the daily habits of our household, and our bathroom was like a miniature drugstore. A friend told us of Christian Science, which, she said, was supposed to heal sickness, but she knew nothing about it. My mother finally succeeded in finding someone who had the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. This was lent to her, with the result that she was completely healed by reading it. She at once discarded all medicines and never again returned to them. She also withdrew from her former church, which she had loved dearly, and united with The Mother Church in Boston, before the original edifice was completed.

In my early childhood I was subject to frequent and very severe attacks of tonsillitis, which continued throughout young womanhood and the early years of married life. Loving practitioners had worked faithfully when called upon, but the suffering, inflammation, and swelling did not seem to yield. One morning, when one of these attacks took place, the thought came to me very clearly to work for myself and use what I had been learning of man's spiritual perfection of being and oneness with God, through earnest study of the Bible and the writings of Mrs. Eddy. Almost instantly the swelling began to disappear, within two hours the healing was complete, and there has never been a recurrence during the intervening twenty years.
