No one could have greater cause for gratitude to God, for Christian Science, than myself. I could not begin to express in words what I owe, hence I am trying to follow its behests in deeds. I sought Christian Science for physical help, but in the second conversation with the friend who started me in the straight and narrow path, I caught the thought that there was vastly more to be found than mere physical healing, and then and there the light of hope was born in my consciousness and has never left me, though I have been through many trials. The conviction that the truth about God and man is not only knowable but also at hand, has always strengthened my courage until I could again behold the light. I cannot imagine a more darkened thought in regard to the promises of the Scriptures than was mine. I often repeated Jesus' words, "Seek, and ye shall find," but how, and where, should I seek? and what should I find? Receiving no answer to these and other questions regarding God and life, I became dissatisfied and restless; but I have had many of the promises fulfilled through the study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. There is no possession on earth that I prize so highly as our text-book.

After persevering three years in the study of this blessed volume, I was healed of deafness, for which I am very grateful, but still more for the overcoming of temper, resentment, love of the world, etc. It has also been my privilege (and no greater one exists) to be the avenue through which others have been healed and led to the truth. I am in awe before the wonderful work that our Leader has done, and is doing for mankind.
