My heart overflows with gratitude when I realize what great freedom has been brought to me through the power of God and His Christ, revealed to me through the earnest study of that priceless volume, Science and Health. When the words Christian Science were first spoken to me, I was a hopeless sufferer with two so-called incurable diseases. I was bedridden for nearly two years and a great sufferer for many years. When told by a kind, loving woman that God could heal me, I asked some questions and the answers were clear. I said to her, "Tell me one thing, Even if I am not healed, will Christian Science bring me nearer to God? "The answer was beautiful to me, "It surely will." I then said, "I will prove this power," and two days later I was taken to the evening meeting. There were only nine or ten persons present, and during the silent prayer I thought my end had come. Then, all at once, there came a great peace and all my sense of pain left me. I caught a glimpse of the Love that healeth all our diseases and I realized that surely God was in this place. I walked out of that room, my heart overflowing with gratitude to God. I immediately began the study of Science and Health, and that wonderful message of Love explained the Word of God. The next day I walked to the home of a practitioner and was received very kindly. Since then it has been my privilege to prove the truth of Christian Science many times, for others as well as for I rejoice that I can say with one of old, "Whereas I was blind, now I see." My family consists of two grown daughters and myself, and we are trying to obey the command, "Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbor."

Words are inadequate to express my love and gratitude to our beloved Leader for what she has done and continues to do for the whole world. We daily striving to live the teachings of Christian Science, and to have the Mind of Christ. —Mrs. M. E. Thompson, Chicago, Ill.
