In 1937, while attending a lecture on Christian Science, I accepted this religion as the way of Life, and since that time it has been my daystar of being. Early recognition of the need to express divine Love brought the assurance that "by serving, love will grow" (Hymn No. 360, Christian Science Hymnal). I was accepted as a member of The Mother Church and of a branch church and have been a member of several branch churches at subsequent times. I served these churches in many capacities, and then had the wonderful privilege of training as a nurse at the Christian Science Benevolent Association on Pacific Coast.

While working as a nurse after my return to Australia, I experienced the following healing. I was in the country in Queensland, more than one thousand miles from home and at least one mile from the nearest neighbor. About six o'clock one morning I was attacked by a very severe pain. This was to have been my day off, and a member of the household came in much later to see why I had not appeared for the morning meal. She graciously read to me from Mrs. Eddy's writings, but when no change had taken place, an effort was made without success to contact a practitioner.
