Christian Science brought me...

Christian Science brought me healing, protection, and great inspiration during the first World War. Now that our country is involved in another war, I am impelled in deep gratitude to recount these experiences of God's presence and love.

I enlisted in the United States Army Ambulance Service, which was organized to serve the French army. When under shellfire for the first time, I huddled at the base of a wall, wanting nothing but to go to sleep and be oblivious to the threat of danger. Here I was, face to face with what I had really enlisted for—to prove the actuality of divine Love in spite of every seeming condition to the contrary. That sense of my purpose woke me out of my dormancy, and the next time the shells burst I found myself standing in the street. Before the smoke and dust cleared out of the air we had our cars going, carrying the wounded French soldiers to the hospital. This was the beginning of a conquest over fear.
