Nine months ago I was a weak, miserable woman, unable to do any work, and scarcely able to stay out of bed. Now I am strong and health, doing my own housework with ease and pleasure.

I was a terrible sufferer with indigestion, nervous prostration, rheumatism, despondency, and other troubles. For several years previous to my marriage I was a trained nurse, and was therefore a slave to material means, more than one who has not had such an experience, but I had lost all faith in every kind of medicine and treatment, and was almost hopeless. Now, thanks to God, through the truth as known in Christian Science I am free. Besides my own healing many blessings have come into our home through the same truth.

"The enslavement of man is not legitimate. It will cease when he enters into his heritage of freedom, his God-given dominion over the material senses" (Science and Health, p. 228). I know that I have gained at least partial dominion over the material senses, to which I was a slave.
