I did not come to Christian Science for the healing, I was attracted by the beauty of the thought.

Science appealed to me as the highest thought in Christian life that I had discovered, and I determined to investigate. I did so, and for nearly three years have been realizing its strength and beauty. I have proved that "divine Love always has met, and always will meet, every human need" (Science and Health, p. 494). I will tell of a demonstration I had last summer. It was just about a year ago in August, and the thought of asthma in the atmosphere, was very strong. One night I awakened with a great sense of suffocation, which to mortal sense, was almost unbearable. I made a light, took Science and Health, and read for about fifteen minutes, then put out the light and went to sleep and slept until morning. That was my first and last attack of anything of the kind.

I am very grateful for the knowledge of Christian Science, it enables me to put on the "whole armor of God" in deed and in truth.—Eleanor S. Smith, Chicago, III.
