When Christian Science was first brought to me, I had been obliged to spend the greater part of my time in bed for several years, living for months at a time on liquid foods, and suffering for nine years with a trouble that it seemed only the knife could remove. I had tried all kinds of physicians, and water-cures, without any lasting benefit, when I turned to Christian Science and was perfectly healed.

My daughter was also healed, having had trouble, from early infancy, with her ears and was fast growing deaf. My healing was very slow, but I would like to state wherein I believe that even this was a benefit. In searching the Scriptures and Science and Health daily, for a better understanding of this blessed Christ-truth, which I knew had released many of my friends, not only the healing came, but with it a love for this study, the value of which in one's life cannot be estimated. It certainly brings a peace that passeth understanding, and which the world can neither give nor take away.

When our lives have been changed from despair and hopeless invalidism to joy and health, we cannot give thanks enough to God, the giver of all good. We are also very grateful to our Leader for Science and Health, which shows us that God is the same yesterday, to-day, and forever, an ever-present help in trouble, that He heals sickness and sin now, as in Jesus' time.
