I submit this testimony of the healing and redeeming power of Christian Science with deep gratitude, hoping that it will help some world-weary one to press onward and upward.

"Let it be understood that success in error is defeat in Truth," writes Mary Baker Eddy on page 239 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." About twenty-five years ago, at the height of a successful career as a singer and teacher, I was enjoying all that professional and worldly success includes. I had studied with master teachers in both America and Europe, and material success had been obtained; but despite this I left defeated in spirit and purpose. I was obsessed with personal ambition and driven by human will. Also I was in bondage to tobacco and alcohol. Reliance upon them for stimulation had brought me to the point of nervous exhaustion with its corresponding states of frustration, severe depression, self-condemnation, and devastating fears. At that time it could have been said that I appeared outwardly successful, but trembled inwardly with defeat.
