This is the way my mother found Christian Science

This is the way my mother found Christian Science. She had two sons about whom she was very fearful because they were constantly ill. In addition, she herself was suffering from a painful internal difficulty. One evening my deeply concerned father came home with a little book in his hand. He explained that one of his business associates had offered it to him with the comment that perhaps it would help his wife.

As Mother opened the copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, her eyes fell on the first sentence of the Preface, which reads (p. vii), "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." She continued reading, doing very little else until she had finished the book. At that point she said to my father, "If this is the truth, it is all that I will ever need."

The internal physical trouble was healed very quickly, and Mother became less fearful about the health of her children. Soon, with her wonderful faith and perseverance, she became a devoted student of Science and was able to heal her sons when the need arose. She lived a very long life, which included almost thirty years in the public practice of Christian Science.
