In 1910 a dearly beloved sister...

In 1910 a dearly beloved sister passed on with what was pronounced tuberculosis. My grief was so great that after a time I began to manifest some of the same symptoms, and it was thought best for me to go to a higher climate. I went to New Mexico and later to Colorado. It was while staying with a sister there that I met a woman whom I admired for her courage and cheerfulness. Very soon I began to wonder what church she belonged to, for I saw she had something I did not have, and I was determined to find out what it was.

One day she told me she was a Christian Scientist. I knew something of Christian Science, and what little of it I had studied I had found to be pure and uplifting. She told me it was not necessary for me to leave my home in Nebraska to seek health in Colorado. She then asked me if I would like some literature. I answered in the affirmative, and the next morning she brought me some copies of the Sentinel and sat down for a few minutes to relate a healing of a woman who had been suffering from cancer, and whose physician had informed her that without an operation he could do nothing for her. A neighbor lent her Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and after six weeks' time she was healed. This greatly impressed me, and from that day on I was better. Soon I could eat anything that was set before me, and this was a proof to me that Christian Science heals.
