In grateful acknowledgment of the many blessings received through Christian Science, I send these words to others who are seeking truth. From girlhood I was considered delicate, having had an accident which affected the spine and which left me unable to do the things I felt I ought to do, or which others did. My road to Christian Science was a hard one. After seeking help some years in other systems, I found I was still at sea, but by praying to be shown the right way, I was led to read Science and Health, which I immediately felt to be what I was seeking. I should like to tell of my experience in painless childbirth. My former experience under materia medica was a sad one, and I was told while at a sanatorium that I would not be able to bear children. I was awakened one night out of a sound sleep, and my baby was born three quarters of an hour after I awoke, with perfect comfort, my husband and I being alone. The sweetness and harmony of this experience can only be appreciated by those who have had both kinds of treatment in obstetrics. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to the practitioner who so patiently led my first efforts in Christian Science, and for the periodicals which come as true friends into my home. I am deeply thankful to God, and to the dear one He has chosen as our Leader.
