Having practiced the nursing profession several years as a registered nurse, I had expressed disapproval of Christian Science many times. Then after a car accident I was out of work and had reached the very depths of despair and could see no human way to go forward. I then remembered a book that was in our home; it had belonged to my grandmother. This book was Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I was already reading the boo!, of Psalms in the Bible, and I started reading this book of my grandmother's. I read for some time, not understanding much that I read; but in a few days I found work in the nursing profession, and it continued for several years.

Then after a number of years I was married to a wonderful man, but again I experienced much inharmony. One of my doctors advised me to try Christian Science. During this period of inharmony, I turned again to my grandmother's book, Science and Health—this time for keeps. The religion I had once ridiculed proved to be the only remedy necessary for the healing of all the discordant physical conditions.

More recently, while helping my husband put our boat up during a storm, I hurt my wrist. I suffered much pain, and when my husband looked at the wrist, he said I had broken it. It was crooked. He put me in the car. The storm lasted for some time, uprooting trees and tearing down light and telephone wires, so we had no telephone or lights when we did go to the house. I declared God's ever-presence, knowing there are no accidents in God's kingdom. I prayed all night.
