Found a Demonstrable Religion

It is now over three years since I began to investigate Christian Science, and what have I found? I have found that even a limited understanding of Christian Science, if rightly applied, can help us under all circumstances.

I have found in Christ, Truth, a physician who is always with me, a friend who never forsakes me, a guide who is ever before me to point out and illumine the rugged pathway, and I have found a true religion. I never seemed to care much about religion before, it seemed so vague and uncertain. Different churches had different views, and there seemed no way to prove which was right. I never asked many questions, but those I did ask were not answered to my satisfaction. I know that Christian Science is right, because I have proved and am proving it day by day, by demonstrating the power of God, Good, over all beliefs in evil. I find it is a religion to be lived every day, and in proportion as we live it, do we derive benefits therefrom.

I desire to relate two cases of healing by Christian Science in our family. The first was a case of spinal meningitis in our little girl, than a baby of about eleven months. My mother and myself were very young in Science then, but we did all we could from 7 A.M. until 11 P.M. My husband, who did not believe in Christian Science then, wanted a doctor, so we called in a lady physician who occupied part of the same house. She did what she could, and her verdict was that the child could not live till morning. Meanwhile I had called in a professional nurse, a friend of ours, who although not a Scientist was quiet and calm. I told my husband I wanted a Christian Scientist, and he went for a practitioner who then lived five miles from here. I think it was about 6 a.m. when she gave the child an absent treatment, as she was unable to come at that time, and the little one fell into a peaceful sleep and improved steadily from that time. The nurse, of course, saw the change and thought it wonderful. The doctor kept her thoughts to herself. My husband accepted Science, for he saw the power of Truth, and we all with grateful hearts thanked God. When I opened my Bible after the worst was over, my eyes rested on the 124th Psalm, and I realized the truth of that Psalm as never before.
