I did not come into Christian Science...

I did not come into Christian Science for physical healing, but one day in 1920, when tidying a bookcase, I came across the textbook. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. My curiosity being aroused, I commenced to read and was greatly impressed by the chapter on Prayer. However, as I perused the book further, I felt afraid to continue lest its teachings should conflict with the religious views which I then held. In 1930 I again came across the same book, and this time I determined to read it through. I read it night and day and could not read anything else. The spiritual uplift was wonderful.

After reading the textbook for two weeks, I was healed almost instantaneously of an abscess in the neck which had developed during this period. I had occasion to go to town on business, and as I traveled I pondered what I had read. The tenth verse of the ninety-first Psalm came to my thought, "There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling." This promise seemed very real to me, and I felt sure that God would heal me. Suddenly the light of Truth flooded my consciousness: I was no longer aware of a matter-body; I was cognizant only of the presence of the Christ, It is not possible adequately to describe this sacred experience. When I arrived home a few hours later, the abscess had entirely disappeared, and the neck was normal. The healing of constipation, from which I had suffered since birth, must have taken place at the same time, for that condition has never recurred.
