Why do I love and revere Mrs. Eddy?...

Why do I love and revere Mrs. Eddy? Because she gave to the world Christian Science, which brings healing, peace, joy, calmness, love, and assurance of life harmonious to all who humbly and faithfully follow her teachings as set forth in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and her other writings.

Early in 1915 my sister became interested in Christian Science and offered it to me but I was satisfied without it, thinking I already knew and revered God. Later in that year we faced a financial loss, and our young daughter was seriously ill. In our deep trouble I realized that I knew not where to find God; therefore I decided to investigate Christian Science. I attended a Sunday morning service, and shall always remember the way the congregation repeated the Lord's Prayer—slowly, sincerely, and impressively. During the service a Christian Science lecture was announced. I eagerly awaited the night it was to be given that I might learn what these people knew of God. For the first time I understood God as good, Life, Truth, and Love. Not thinking of or expecting healing, I found I was healed of serious eye trouble, and I rejoiced.
