Although I was raised in the Christian doctrine, I had many adversities to meet in later years, for unity of heart and mind, equality in kindness, and love were not found in our home. This condition induced me to investigate Christian Science, and shortly after, my twenty-months-old child suffered from indigestion. The physician gave me to understand that the child would not live more than three years, but Science effected the healing in three weeks and the child is now nine years of age. This elucidated for me the Scripture passage: "O death where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" I thank God, who has given me the victory in Christ.

Through this teaching I came into the spiritual perception of our heavenly possessions on earth, and that the worldly and earthly have no place in God or in right consciousness.

A short time ago I went to the bedside of a sick one over whom the death sentence had been pronounced, but by knowing that through the reappearing of the Christ-idea, we have eternal life, relief was realized. The young man, who had been afflicted with a terrible disease, is entirely healed and well. "Blessed are they that hear the word of God and keep it."
