When Christian Science was first presented to me, it came through the healing of a dear friend, and although I was not really antagonistic to it, I was not interested in it until some months later. My lungs, which had not been strong for some time, became troublesome, and I consulted our family physician who, I feel sure, did the best he could for me, but I grew worse as time went on. One day the subject of changing physicians came up and I was urged to try Christian Science. I hesitated for some time, then assented, and through the years that have passed since, I have not regretted the choice for one moment. There have been many battles fought and victories won for Truth, and through my practitioner's understanding of Christian Science I grew well and strong. I began to study the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and gained a new and better understanding of God. Later came class instruction with a dear teacher to whom I ever feel grateful for her watchfulness and guidance.

Before I became interested in Christian Science I was a member of an orthodox church and attended the services regularly, but the thought often came to me, "How do I know that I am right, I have no real proof?" It seemed to me there must be some way whereby we could know,—feel sure,—that we were in the right way. I do not suppose my experience is different from that of others who have found in Christian Science that which abundantly satisfies. I know that its Principle is divine, that it heals and saves. For all the good that has come to me through Christian Science my thought goes out to our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, with love and reverence; for it is through her faithfulness that I have been enabled to bring to others this Truth which, destroys all error. I wish to thank all those who labor for the good of the Field; for the Sentinel, Journal, and the Lesson-Sermon. Each is doing its own work, and is full of loving thoughts which meet each reader's need.
