Because I have learned that...

Because I have learned that problems promote our growth. I feel grateful indeed that when I reached my extremity as a young woman I found the wonderful healing truth presented in Christian Science. I was immediately healed of much fear and realized that to worry is indeed to break the First Commandment.

When in deep humility, willing to give up everything I held dear just to know more about God. I prayed to be shown the way the answer came immediately. Although I did not recognize it then as an angel voice. I was led to telephone a friend whom I knew to be a Christian Scientist, and whose life attested that she relied on her religion for help. I knew absolutely nothing about the teachings of Christian Science at the time. Shortly afterwards I found myself with a borrowed copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, which I read day and night. Truly God had answered my sincere longing. I was instantaneously healed of the desire for materia medica, understanding to a degree that since God is All-in-all we cannot possibly have anything more.
