I had suffered with very severe headaches since childhood, and was told that they were inherited, as my mother had always been troubled with them. But what a comforting assurance was this: "It is our ignorance of God, the divine Principle, which produces apparent discord, and the right understanding of Him restores harmony" (Science and Health, p. 390). On the occasion of a very severe attack of headache, a friend who was a Christian Scientists came to make a social call, and seeing the bondage I was in, told me I did not need to suffer in this way; that Christian Science would help me, if I was willing to try it. Knowing of the case mentioned above, I was ready to receive the healing, and was advised to get Mrs. Eddy's book, "Science and Health," and study it. The next day I walked two miles to get the book, and commenced to read that glorious message for the first time.
This was nineteen years ago, and from that day I have used no material remedies, the thought of headaches having been long ago buried in oblivion. The Bible became a daily monitor, and a joy, for the "key" unlocked its treasures. For the many blessings which I have received since knowing the truth that this Science teaches, I feel more grateful than words can express, and it is only in giving to others of what I have been able to understand, that I can in a measure express my love and gratitude to our beloved Leader, who has brought to humanity the knowledge of our divine right to health and harmony.
