When I was fifteen years old a friend invited me to go to the local Church of Christ, Scientist, and on arrival she directed me to the Sunday School. Until this time, I had been brought up in a Protestant faith and had, in fact, been confirmed, but had found in this teaching no comfort or real understanding of God. I had, however, a deep love of the Bible. From that time onward I regularly attended the Christian Science Sunday School until I was twenty.

Throughout the years I have had many physical healings and have derived much help from Christian Science in my daily profession. About twelve years ago one of my wards had mumps. A Christian Science practitioner was helping the child, but we obeyed the law concerning children under sixteen and notified a doctor. A doctor came and examined the child and said it was necessary for her to check the rest of the household. In the course of this examination she located a small growth on my neck. I began to pray consistently in regard to this unnatural growth, but it became larger. After about five years I decided to have the help of a Christian Science practitioner for the condition.
