Help for the Sorrowing

When Christian Science was first presented to me, I scorned it, would not investigate, would not even allow it spoken of in my presence. I looked upon it as one of the many new beliefs, springing up to deceive God's elect. My sister was a loyal Christian Scientist and had been healed several years before I would investigate it. I did not come to Science for the healing for myself; my health has always been perfect. But all of my family, a husband and three children had passed away, and I had only one little one left It was then I gave up and cried out, "Save Lord, or I perish." I first commenced to read Science for relief of mind. I was so burdened with anxiety and grief that I felt I should become insane, if I did not find relief. I asked my sister to read some to me and though I did not understand it all, still I felt very much relieved. Soon after this my little girl was taken with a fever. I took her to our leader in the work here for treatment, and in a week's time she was healed. Since that time she has been perfectly well and happy.

Oh! how grateful we should all be for "the little book," "Science and Health."
