From early childhood I have known only Christian Science. At that time my mother was healed of inflammatory rheumatism through the help of a practitioner, when the doctors had despaired of her life. She was so greatly uplifted by this wonderful experience that in all the years since, she has never wavered in her complete reliance on Christian Science to solve all our problems.

She very soon had an opportunity to prove the efficacy of this practical religion. I had always been subject to convulsions, and shortly after her healing I manifested this condition again. We did not have a telephone, and Mother could not leave me to go for help, so she turned wholeheartedly to God to be shown what to do. She then remembered that the practitioner had once told her that the child-thought usually grasps the truth more quickly than the adult, so she took "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy and began to read to me. She turned completely away from the material evidence and pondered every word she read. In a few minutes she glanced toward me, to find that I was absorbed in listening to her. When she stopped, I smiled and said, "Mama, God made me all better." And that was the end of the condition that had recurred so often.
