"It is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works" (Ps. 73:28).

My first impression of Christian Science came through witnessing a healing accomplished by the love and spiritual understanding of a Christian Science practitioner. My three-months-old son was greatly emaciated and was said to be dying. Though I knew nothing of Science, I had heard that it heals through prayer. A practitioner was called, and he took up prayerful work after advising me to read several verses from Psalms. The baby's recovery was marvelous, and I perceived that God is the healer in Christian Science.

The fact that God heals our diseases came as a great joy. From that moment on I used no material remedy. I can never tell what the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, has meant to me throughout the years. Our family has used the truth gained from reading it not only for the healing of sickness, but as a preventive, especially at times when there was fear of contagion.
