As a young girl of seventeen I was led to attend services in a branch Church of Christ, Scientist. I was led to attend services in a branch Church of Christ, Scientist. I was not looking for a physical healing at the time, but rather for peace of mind because of a nervous breakdown, from which I had suffered for over a year. Although I had little knowledge of Christian Science, my healing came about, and solely through attendance at the services. One day the reading from the Bible included the account of the boy healed by Jesus after his disciples could not heal him because of their unbelief, as recorded in the seventeenth chapter of Matthew. This made such an impression upon me that I was freed completely.

It was several years later that once again Christian Science was brought to my attention, this time by my husband's mother, when I was incapacitated through recurring attacks of influenza and asthma. The healing of these conditions was not completed for some time. In the meanwhile I had become an earnest student of Christian Science, had joined The Mother Church and a branch church, and had had the precious privilege of class instruction. Through the uncovering of hatred for someone I believed I had justifiable reasons for hating, I was completely healed of both influenza and asthma, which materia medica, change of climate, and all manner of remedies had failed to heal. I then was ready to be of service in the movement of Christian Science and have since served in church activities.
