From the age of seven, I was interested in finding out more of God. My parents did not go to church, but with my little friends I went to many of the churches in the neighborhood where we lived. It was still common when I was young to read the Bible and sing hymns in public school, and I loved this activity every morning. Thus I learned a number of psalms and many beautiful parts of the book of Revelation.

When I was twenty, my husband brought home some Christian Science literature. Then I knew! This was it—this was what I had been looking for. I was healed of a goiter just through reading Science and Health, written by our Leader, Mrs. Eddy. I had had the goiter for many years. It just disappeared. Our baby's health improved noticeably too. He became strong and well, and I enrolled him in the Christian Science Sunday School when he turned two.

We went to live in France for a while when our boy was grown. It was such a joy to attend local Christian Science churches during our stay there. At the Wednesday evening meetings I would give testimony in French and English.
