I would like to tell, if I could, all the good that has come to me and my household through Christian Science, and give expression to the love and gratitude I owe to God for the blessings bestowed upon us and all the world through our Leader, Mrs. Eddy. The first demonstration of physical healing in Christian Science that I saw convinced me that this Science that is the truth, and I was not long in trying it for myself, though the operation of putting off the old that I might put on the new, puzzled me sorely. I dreaded the criticism and opposition of those who saw not as I saw, which meant at that time practically every one I knew, and for a while I was depressed thereby, though I did not give up. I came, however, to understand something of how it is that with God all things are possible, and that I did not need to cover the whole ground at one step. My liberation from illness was rather slow, and really came only as my understanding grew. All who knew me were amazed at the change in my appearance, many telling me that they had supposed I was "not to be here long."

I am truly thankful for the bodily aid, but that is not all. The study of Christian Science, as revealed in its textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," has given me a spiritual knowledge of God and of man's relation to Him that I would not exchange for anything earthly. There are struggles yet, in my endeavor to overcome sin and sickness, but the Master's words, spiritually understood and scientifically applied, in keeping with the teaching of Christian Science, have not failed me, and have enabled me to help others out of bondage.
