The Sentinel and Journal are very helpful to me, and I am thankful for them in every way. Some years ago, when I first heard of this truth, I was in very poor health, nearly always in pain of some sort, and taking medicine daily. I was unhappy and discontented, and seemed to lack nearly everything that I needed. I longed to believe that Christian Science could heal, but it seemed too wonderful to be true. The first time I tried it was for our little boy. He had always been subject to severe coughs and colds, and this time his coughing was so painful and distressing that I was in a state of fear difficult to describe. I tried every known remedy, it seemed to me, and finally I thought I would go to a Christian Science practitioner and see if there was anything in it for us. The cough yielded to treatment almost immediately, and I cannot tell how happy I was to know that Christian Science does heal. From that time I began studying in earnest, and have been healed of many difficulties. I had been taking medicine daily for one trouble, and this was healed first. Rheumatism, indigestion, and other inharmonious conditions have also been overcome. My children were brought through scarlet fever in a very few days, and were in better health afterwards than before, thus breaking the supposed law that this disease will leave bad after-effects. They have also been helped in many different ways. The sense of limitation has been overcome in a large degree, and life seems full of wonderful opportunities for working for God and humanity. I know that each day will bring to me a better understanding of this truth, and I am glad to express my gratitude to our dear Leader for her life and work.—Bertha N. Hatch, Milwaukee, Wis.
