Christian Science came to me...

Christian Science came to me during the worst of the so-called depression, at a time when every material prop had failed me. My husband had had no work for months, and I was suffering from a disease the doctor pronounced pellagra, and had no funds to pay for the treatment he prescribed. A friend and former music teacher asked me to try Christian Science, and gave me a number of copies of the Journal and Sentinel to read.

From the first I knew I had found the truth, the key to the solving of all my problems, and I began to read almost constantly. The second week I discarded all material remedies and was able to do my laundry without even a sense of fatigue. In every article I read, I noticed quotations from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and, oh, how I wanted this book! Money with which to buy a book at that time seemed an impossibility, but a practitioner in a near-by city borrowed one for me, telling me that I might keep it for four weeks, by which time he expected I should be demonstrating something of what I had learned and would own my own copy.
