I first heard of Christian Science over twenty-five years ago, when its healing truth was brought into our home by the captain of the naval ship to which my husband was attached. My sister-in-law was in the last stages of tuberculosis and had been given up by her doctor. After a week's treatment in our house she returned to her own home, where the complete healing took place within a few months.

For a time we attended the Christian Science church wherever we were, but did little reading and studying. My case was one where the seed of Truth, once sown, lies dormant, but springs up into strength and life when human resources fail, and the tired heart at last turns to God.

About six years ago the world seemed very dark to me. My husband became dangerously ill and underwent a serious operation. His doctor told me he would probably not recover. That night the thought of turning to Christian Science came to me with such force and insistence that I asked my husband to take this way out of our troubles. He said if I would study with him he would try it.
