Eight years ago I was starting life alone after many years of an unhappy marriage. I walked into a Christian Science Reading Room, not quite knowing why. This first contact led to the provision of a place to stay in a lovely home. Some months later I attended services in a branch Church of Christ, Scientist. Although I understood little of what was said, I felt the love expressed by the members. A solo based on the ninety-first Psalm gave me strength and confidence and encouraged me to read more of the Bible. A friend gave me Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, which I read along with the Christian Science periodicals.
For many years I had suffered with hay fever, and every autumn felt miserable. I decided to apply my newfound religion and went to see a Christian Science practitioner. One visit brought healing. The symptoms disappeared along with fear of the autumn season, and I threw away all my pills and drops. At the same time all desire for alcohol, which I had relied on for comfort and help, left me.
After a year of attending services and seeing some wonderful healings, I joined the branch church and then The Mother Church. I relied entirely on this Science for healing. Relationship difficulties were resolved and physical ills overcome. "Step by step will those who trust Him find that 'God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble'" (Science and Health, p. 444). Life has become meaningful, spiritually rich and rewarding. I am grateful to God for His unspeakable gift, revealed to Mrs. Eddy as Christian Science.
