I first became interested in Christian Science...

I first became interested in Christian Science through a friend's healing of tuberculosis. My curiosity was aroused by this healing, and I wished to investigate Science, although I did not expect to believe in its teachings. I had previously scorned religions as vague, useless philosophies and said that I would believe in God when someone proved to me that there was one.

At my request my friend lent me two of Mrs. Eddy's books, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and "Miscellaneous Writings." I had not read many pages before I realized that I had found the truth which I had always been searching for. I shall never forget that experience, for it was a turning point in my life; it was like walking out of the darkness into the light. Within the period of a few months I was a changed person. I had been cynical and quite materially-minded, thinking of life as a never-ending battle. Also I had thought that the brief joys which I experienced were doomed to be accompanied by great hardships—and so they usually were. Since then, however, my entire outlook has changed to one of hope and expectation of good, and I know without a doubt that there is a very wonderful God.
