For over forty years Christian Science...

For over forty years Christian Science has been my help in overcoming many difficulties regarding health and also supply.

In 1917 the fear of losing my mind was so depressing I had to resign from a teaching position. Months later I heard of Christian Science and was told that it would help my mother, a semi-invalid. She was unwilling to have anything to do with it, but it did hold out hope for me. I traveled to a city some eighty miles distant, still afraid and uncertain, but hopeful. The practitioner I had gone to see was very kind. Her words were comforting: "You can't lose your mind. God is the only Mind, and you can't lose God." Although I had been a devout Bible student since I was a small child, this seemed almost too good to be true!

The practitioner went with me to a Christian Science Reading Room, and I secured the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and the current issue of the Quarterly. The second Wednesday after I began studying I gave a testimony at the Wednesday meeting in a branch church, expressing my deep gratitude for the light shining on my way, for the happiness I felt in finding a religion with which I could help myself and others.
