Ten years ago I became interested in Christian Science through the healing of a friend, which was very remarkable. My brother's wife then sought help, and being greatly benefited, purchased a copy of Science and Health, and brought it into our home. I had suffered from throat trouble for some time, and had grown despondent, feeling that there was nothing to live for. My parents were strictly orthodox, but I could not understand why they believed in sickness as they were honest readers of the Bible. I then united with another orthodox church, but found nothing there that could give me any light on the Scriptures, and I would take up the Bible and lay it down, feeling that it was a sealed book.

Through the study of Christian Science I soon read the Bible understandingly. Many forms of error in myself and others have been overcome, and I am learning to know something of God, as Love, also of His justice, and mercy, and that He is an ever-present help when we trust Him. Fear of doing public work has been cast out, which enables me to sing in church with confidence, and I am proving daily that God is a never-failing source of supply, that good is abundant, and that man as the image and likeness of his Maker, reflects the full understanding of divine Principle. My heart is full of deep gratitude to our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, through whose teachings I have found "my Life, as God's own child;" and for what the truth is doing for me and for the whole world.
