I did not take up the study of Christian Science for myself but for a loved one who was in great need of help. Soon after I began reading the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scripture" by Mary Baker Eddy, however, I knew that Science had come to me in answer to prayer, and I accepted it gratefully.

We have had many wonderful healings in Christian Science, but there is one that seems to be outstanding, because we did not have the help of a practitioner and were new in Science. My young son had been subject to croup all of his life, and I was caused great anxiety when he had attacks. Soon after I began studying Christian Science he was again attacked. The first thought that came to me was to apply material remedies, but then I remembered that I was studying Christian Science and that it heals, for we had had proof of it. I began to study and to work as well as I knew how, and when the child became so restless that I could not hold him and read too, I gave the book to my daughter, and she continued to read aloud. Finally we had proof of God's ever-presence, for suddenly the child dropped his head on my shoulder and breathed quietly, and in a few moments he was asleep. His healing has been permanent.
