I awakened one morning with the feeling that a change had taken place, and when I saw that my husband was speaking to me and that I heard absolutely nothing of what he said, I realized that I was deaf. At first I was full of fear, but very quickly I realized that the only thing I had to do was to work and pray as Christian Science teaches us.

For nearly three weeks I studied the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and other writings on Christian Science at every moment; and I prayed during the night when I felt the need.

My husband was often absent in the afternoon, and I then played the records of hymns by Mrs. Eddy. I would put my ear to the loudspeaker to hear them better. Being the only sound that I could hear, although only faintly, it was nevertheless sufficient to keep me alert and give me courage in God alone.
