Although Christian Science was...

Although Christian Science was not unknown to me, my grandmother having been interested in it for many years, I knew practically nothing about its teachings until I began to study it about ten years ago. At that time my husband and I became acquainted with some students of this Science, and when I was offered The Christian Science Journal and the Sentinel to read, I accepted them out of courtesy. I know now that that was the turning point in my life. As I read these periodicals, I had a great desire to know more about Christian Science, and a few months later a relative lent me the textbook, Science and Health.

At that time I was under the care of a physician for a severe gall bladder condition which had troubled me for over three years, and for which I was taking several different kinds of medicine. Yet when I began the study of Christian Science it was not with the desire to be healed of anything. I was satisfied to read the textbook, and was so absorbed in it that I could scarcely put it down or think of anything else. The statements of truth which I read so filled my consciousness that I forgot to take my medicine, nor have I taken medicine for any other trouble since then. I was healed completely of both the gall bladder trouble and the use of medicine. It was some time, however, before I recognized the latter healing.
