In 1952 I related in a testimony in The Herald of Christian Science, German Edition, how I came to Christian Science exactly fifty years ago. An acquaintance, whom I had known as a dyspeptic, was healed through Christian Science. I received some Heralds, which I read with great interest, since I myself was seeking healing of serious mental troubles. Soon I attended Christian Science church services; I met a practitioner, who supported and instructed me in my beginning study of Christian Science. I withdrew from a Protestant church, became a member of a branch church, of The Mother Church, and had class instruction. I assumed many church duties, served as Second Reader and First Reader, and was active in the Sunday School for many years.

When I came into Christian Science, I was a young woman; today, eighty-six years old, I am still active on committees and in the healing work. I have only the teachings of Christian Science to thank for my continuing good health. It has not always been easy, but in all my trials Christian Science was always a source of spiritual strength and enhanced my life. God was my only physician in every need. In the Bible is found the following comforting verse (Isa. 46:4): "And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoarhairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you."
