When I was a small child, my mother, after being given up by the doctors, was healed in Christian Science. Then my three brothers and I were enrolled in a Christian Science Sunday School, and I have had no help but Christian Science since that time for physical, mental, moral, social, and financial problems.

During my early and middle teens I passed through a period of mental turmoil with much doubt and discouragement. At no time did I want to give up Science for something else, but it did not seem to be working for me; so I stopped studying the weekly Lesson-Sermons in the Quarterly.

One Sunday when I was on my way to work in a large public library, the mental picture was very dark and unhappy. Everything seemed wrong to me; even the weather was gloomy. Suddenly as I rode along on the streetcar, feeling sorry for myself, the truth of God and of His perfect creation came to my thought in a flood of light; it was as if the raising of a shade in a darkened room had let in the sunlight. The despair and unhappiness vanished, it was a beautiful revelation.
