I became interested in Christian Science...

I became interested in Christian Science more than thirty-five years ago. At the time I was suffering from a severe chill, and it was believed that I had lung trouble. The doctor had said I must take great care. My mother, who had become interested in Christian Science through an uncle, came into my room one day and put the textbook. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, on my bed and asked me to read the book for her sake. When my mother left I flung the textbook as far away as I could and lay down. I thought it would have been better if she had given me something to drink rather than a book to read.

At that moment I began to cough severely. I thought of my mother's request, and I knew that she would never ask me to do anything that was not right. So I got up, picked up the book, returned to my bed, and began to read the chapter on Prayer. I got to page 6, where these words appear: " God is Love.' More than this we cannot ask, higher we cannot look, farther we cannot go."
