Testimonies of Healing

It is time that I gave Christian Science...

From the October 1968 issue of The Christian Science Journal

It is time that I gave Christian Science the glory due its name. The allness of God that it teaches has been proved repeatedly in my experience.

When Christian Science came to me, I was terribly confused. Life seemed empty and incomplete. My husband was away in the armed services and insisted that I join him. I did not want to leave home. At this time some Christian Science literature was given to my brother by his employer. Because he knew of my interest in religion, my brother gave the literature to me. Included in this literature was a copy of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. This book became my constant companion for many weeks. It gave logical answers to my questions about God and man and the universe. The startling thought for me was that in divine Science God is All and evil is unreal. This statement was contrary to everything I had been taught in my former religion. As I continued to study this captivating book, I was certain that Christian Science was going to be my way of life.

Gradually the state of confusion and incompleteness began to disappear from thought. The words of the Preacher came to mind unceasingly, "Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity" (Eccl. 1:2). I continued to study Science and Health, and I reluctantly joined my husband at his Naval Station, realizing more clearly that the fleeting material concepts left behind are the "vanity of vanities."
