When Christian Science was presented...

When Christian Science was presented to me in 1912, I was in a state of despair. My husband had passed on, and loneliness and grief overcame me. I had two small children to work for, and I was physically weak. My life seemed hopeless. I had no parents or friends to help, and except for my children I had no desire to live.

It was then that a woman spoke to me of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, saying that she could not have lived without Christian Science. I was ready for anything that would bring relief, and the very first lines in the Preface to the textbook (p vii). "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." brought a desire to learn more. I read on, and kept reading, as it was the only comfort I had experienced during those black days. The chapter on Prayer sustained me, and I glimpsed the meaning of the words in Psalm 46, "Be still, and know that I am God." As the light came to me, the situation changed. I began to demonstrate supply by following in the best way I knew the teachings of the Bible and Christian Science. My family have been blessed indeed, and we owe everything to this wonderful truth.
