In 1918 I was employed as a secretary in this city, and was very lonely and sad. A stranger came into the office one day, and during a short conversation she mentioned the Christian Science Reading Room, saying that the answer to any trouble or sorrow could be found there.

My mother had been an ardent worker in an orthodox church, but as I could not accept all of its creed I had never joined it. After my mother passed on, I attended various Protestant churches seeking comfort, but became more confused and troubled. About a year later I remembered what this person had said to me, and I went to the Christian Science Reading Room. The librarian explained how to study Christian Science, and I purchased a copy of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and read it every spare moment. I pondered what I had read and accepted all that I could understand. The reading of the book lifted me out of the murky condition of thought, and I began to attend the Christian Science church. In 1925 I became a member of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, and of a branch church; I also had class instruction the same year.

During all the years since then every problem that has arisen has been solved in Christian Science. I have been healed of sorrow, lack, and colds.
