With the hope that it may help...

With the hope that it may help others I bear grateful witness to the healing power of divine Love. Twenty-one years ago I began to read the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, not for physical healing, but because my experiences in the World War had left me disillusioned and faced with a gloomy prospect of economic adjustment.

Because work in the profession for which I had prepared in college had become almost nonexistent, it seemed necessary to start at the bottom in a new line of work. This I did; and in a few months faced my first problem of supply. My father passed on suddenly, intestate, leaving no income but mine to support my mother and myself until his affairs were straightened out. My small salary was insufficient to care for one, to say nothing of two; but I had been gaining faith in God through studying the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly, and I felt sure of His loving providence. Very shortly, through an unexpected shift in personnel, an opening came for me in my department, bringing a salary increase which met our needs completely at the time.
