"The loveliness of Love is all around." These words from Hymn No. 64 of the Christian Science Hymnal have brought joy to my heart for many years. But I did not always know this joy. Before I learned of Christian Science, I had many problems. After the birth of my first child, I suffered a bad fall. Six weeks later, because I was still having difficulty, I was taken to a hospital. Among other injuries I was told I had crushed vertebrae. When I returned home I fainted and fell many more times.

A dear aunt urged me to study Christian Science, but I said I was content in the church I went to. Later, twins were born to me. When the girl had walked for a year, the boy still had not. He had been in and out of hospitals many times. In discouragement I wrote to my aunt and said, "If you think Christian Science can help, you can pray for the child." In three weeks my son walked everywhere his sister did. I then began a study of Science.
