Christian Science means more...

Christian Science means more and more to me all the time. Hardly a day passes that sincere gratitude does not well up and flow over. For many years the understanding of God gained from Mrs. Eddy's writings, from a wise teacher's class instruction and the guidance of a loving practitioner, has brought me untold blessings. It is high time for me to share some of them through our periodicals.

In 1911, after a year of nerve-racking work, I collapsed with a severe nervous breakdown. The kindly family doctor could do nothing for me. I was gradually drifting into a coma, with the fear-filled faces of my parents hovering over me, when I remembered that an aunt of mine had been helped by Christian Science. I asked my father to find her practitioner. That was the way I started, but it was several years before I was completely free so that by my own understanding I could banish the symptoms as soon as they appeared. During that slow healing I was forced to study, and through the wise and understanding work of a loving practitioner, I gradually gained in the knowledge of God and man's relation to Him. The psychology and philosophy I had studied in college often got in the way. I was too critical and argumentative. The first gleam of childlike faith and the realization of my true being did more than hours of intellectual reasoning.
