I should like to express my deep gratitude for Christian Science and to acknowledge all the good that has been mine through it. I was brought up in Science as a young girl, but it was not until after I married that I began the study of it for myself.
A short time after the birth of our first son, I fell into such a state of mental depression and fear that at times I thought of taking my life. A practitioner gave me treatment. It was a prolonged case, and I was afraid that my limited understanding of Science was not enough to enable me to be healed in spite of the good work being done by the practitioner. One day, in reading an article in the Journal, I came across a sentence explaining that we need not try to take in more than our daily bread because we cannot digest more. I continued my study, but without the desperate struggle to literally cram myself; and my release came.
During this time I found it difficult to ask my husband for the necessary money to pay for my treatment, because he was not a student of Science; but I was grateful that he did not insist that I have medical treatment. I mentioned to the practitioner that I wished there was some way I could earn money that I could use as my own, and at the same time pay household bills with, for at that time we were dependent on our crop for our living. She told me to make it a subject of prayer, that God supplies all our needs, and that what was right for me would be manifested.
