It is the overflowing of a grateful heart that prompts this letter to the Sentinel,—a heart that once knew not how to be grateful or how to love its neighbors, although it acknowledged it ought to do so. Now I count among my greatest blessings, the genuine gratitude I feel, and the love I have for others.

I united with the Baptist Church at the age of fourteen years, and for fourteen years remained an active member in all church work and a teacher in the Sunday School. I am grateful to the dear friends I there found who contributed so largely to my religious education, my love for the Scriptures, and my hungering and thirsting after righteousness. But my heart was not at peace. Thought was tempest-tossed through the warfare of good and evil, flesh and Spirit. The thing that I longed most to know was, "How can I abide in Christ? What is it to abide in Christ?"

Nine years ago, through the healing of a friend, I was led to investigate Christian Science. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" was put into my hand. As I read it I knew I had found what it was to abide in Christ and how to do it.
