Some years ago I walked into a Christian Science church to find out exactly what went on there. I had reached a point of great indecision and doubt about organized religion and religious doctrine in general. And I had developed a most critical state of mind from past experience with other religious teachings. In this state of thought I approached Christian Science rather guardedly. But because I was determined to know all about it before deciding to "take it or leave it," I was willing to open my heart and mind to the study of it.

I have since had many opportunities to prove the genuineness of the teachings, and the irrefutable and demonstrable power of Mrs. Eddy's discovery, Christian Science. Many are the proofs I have seen in my life of the practicality of this revealed religion.

My first healing in Christian Science, which occurred some years ago, was of food poisoning. Soon after dinner one evening I began to feel a great deal of pain in my stomach. Other alarming symptoms followed. My knowledge of Christian Science at this time was quite scanty, but there were no Christian Science practitioners that I knew of living nearby. So I felt this was an opportunity for me to prove the little that I knew of Science.
