Many years ago, while mentally striving for something to hold to besides matter, I became interested in various so-called mental sciences, until I ran into a problem for which none of these things could give me any aid or show the way out. Having a sister who was a Christian Scientist, I gradually, through frequent association with her, found something that gave me a sense of security. Because I was confused by false theology, the understanding of Truth, as taught in Christian Science, came slowly, and for a long time there seemed to be no definite physical healing. In spite of much suffering and opposition to Truth in the home, at no time did I ever entertain a thought of letting go of what I now had.

Finally I began to reap results, and rheumatism disappeared, together with other physical discords.

An instantaneous healing of ptomaine poisoning was experienced through the work of a practitioner. I was so ill that I could hardly make my way to a telephone outside the building where I was staying at the time. I was a complete stranger and did not know a practitioner, but divine Love led me in selecting one registered in the Journal. I do not remember anything she said to me other than that I could get back to my room, when I voiced the fear that I should not be able to do so. I did get back; and as I opened the door it seemed as though a heavy covering was removed and there came such a sense of freedom that I realized I was entirely healed. This new sense of freedom stayed with me for days. After this healing, whenever a sense of discouragement tempted me, I recalled this experience and became more established in Truth than ever.
