The inspired Word of the prophet Jeremiah (Jer. 29:13), "Ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart," was fulfilled in my experience when in 1937 I began to read the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, our God-inspired Leader. A nameless longing from childhood for God, for an explanation of the why and wherefore of existence, was completely satisfied. It has been like stepping out of darkness into light. It has brought me untold happiness, peace, and joy, and has shown me something of the beauty of our Leader's statement (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 165), "Thus may each member of this church rise above the oft-repeated inquiry, What am I? to the scientific response: I am able to impart truth, health, and happiness, and this is my rock of salvation and my reason for existing."

Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health (p. 369), "The prophylactic and therapeutic (that is, the preventive and curative) arts belong emphatically to Christian Science, as would be readily seen, if psychology, or the Science of Spirit, God, was understood." I am grateful indeed to testify that this truth has been proved in my experience. Since the first glimmer of the Christ, Truth, dawned in my consciousness, I have not spent a day in bed because of illness. Previously, I never went through a winter without attacks of colds or influenza which necessitated my staying in for a week or so.
