Many years ago, at a time of serious physical and financial need. I was introduced to Christian Science through reading a copy of the Sentinel which I found in a hotel room.

I had been told by physicians that I would probably not live longer than two years because of a throat and respiratory trouble. In darkness as to God's nature, and feeling that if I were soon to pass, on, I should know something about Him, I was constantly confronted with these questions: What is God? How shall I pray? Why am I here in a dying condition? What can I do about it? A beam of spiritual understanding came to me through my perusal of the Sentinel that I had picked up; and as I continued to read, I knew for the first time that my questions would be answered. I went immediately to a Christian Science Reading Room to purchase a copy of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy.

The way up seemed long, and progress slow. Many times the seeds of truth seemed to fall by the wayside, but thanks to the benevolence of our heavenly Father, divine Love, some fell on good ground and bore fruit. I was ready to acknowledge that God heals, even before I understood how the healing was done. The physical condition which had prevailed since early childhood had made me so weak I had to rest during the performance of the slightest physical task. But as I consecrated myself to more earnest study of the Bible and Science and Health, fear and the false beliefs supporting it were overcome, and the feeling of exhaustion gradually disappeared.
