Found the Truth in Christian Science

I did not come to Christian Science for physical healing. I had been a member of an Orthodox Church for a number of years but was not satisfied, and was always looking and searching for something different, something I could understand. I attended a Christian Science service more out of curiosity than anything else. It did not make any special impression upon me at first, only I felt that I wanted to go again. After attending the services a few times I became interested enough to visit the reading room and talk with those in charge. I soon felt it was the Truth and what I wanted. I procured a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and at once became deeply interested in it. Before I had read it through the first time I was healed of hernia which had been a great trouble and annoyance to me for sixteen years. I have since been healed of many ills, among them sick headache and indigestion which I had had from childhood. I have also laid aside glasses which I had worn for eight years; I have not had them on for nearly two years and I read and sew and do anything I need to do without them. I feel that I cannot begin to express the benefit that Christian Science has been to me both physically and spiritually. I know my whole life has been made happier by it. I certainly feel very grateful to our Leader for showing us this blessed Truth.—A. H. Smith, Jacksonville, Fla.
