About six years ago, I became interested in Christian Science. Before this time, I had prayed to God to let me get well or die. One night the thought came to me that if God is good (and good He must be, because such good as there was in me must have come from the source of all good), He does not place burdens too "grievous to be borne"' on the shoulders of His children, and there must be some solution to the problem of being which I had not found. At that time I was taking six different medicines prescribed by my attending physician.

Shortly after this, Christian Science was presented to me. Only because I had promised to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy did I continue to read. At first I rejected the teaching that there is no sensation in matter. However, after reading about a third of the way through the book, I thought: "Well, this book certainly ascribes all honor and glory and power to God. I like that about it, whatever else I may think of the rest of it." Then I began to think more kindly of the author, because I knew that anyone who gave such praise to God deserved respect.

That night after retiring I began to roll and toss. Then the thought came, "If that book is true, I do not have to lie here sleepless all night." Immediately the voice of the Christ, Truth, sounded in my consciousness, "Peace, be still." I fell asleep and did not awaken until the next morning. From that time on I discarded all medicine, and have had many healings, including those of lifelong constipation, fear of the future, an overwhelming sense of responsibility, and other ills, both physical and mental. I should like to relate one of them.
