It is hard to know where to begin in expressing my great gratitude for Christian Science.

I was brought up in this religion. My mother became interested in this Science before she married. Because of a serious illness the doctor had predicted a life of semi-invalidism for her. She turned to Christian Science and was healed. I can remember many evidences of her health and vigor, including mountain climbing and tennis. She had a long active life, far removed from any trace of semi-invalidism. Her spiritual conviction of the healing power of Christian Science early inspired me with deep faith in the transforming power of this Science.

Many years ago I had an illness which frightened me. I do not know what it would have been called medically. I asked for treatment in Christian Science. Seeking earnestly for a deeper understanding of Truth, I clung to passages in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy.
