New hope is born after reading textbook

"To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, Pref., p. vii). How truly blessed I have been since the great truth of Christian Science was revealed to me about four years ago. For a long time previous to this I was sick with nervous breakdowns which led me from one fear to another. I tried material remedies, had myself psychonalyzed, submitted to a series of electric shock treatments and injections, and took medicines, all to no avail. I was constantly depressed, nervous, and full of fear. I prayed hourly to God to relieve me and even thought of destroying myself, but the love of my children and the hope of something yet unknown kept me at my daily chores like a slave awaiting freedom sometime, somewhere.

One day when my thinking was so darkened that I was at my extremity, I appealed to my sister to place me in a mental institution. She then recommended that I try Christian Science. Hope surged up in my heart, and from the moment I entered the church of which I am now a member, I knew that God was helping me and that this religion was what I had been praying for. I borrowed Science and Health and read it from beginning to end in one week. During that time I was healed of depression and fear, and a new hope was born in me.
