Christian Science has kept myself and family free from sickness, while prior to gaining this knowledge we seemed to have it all the time. I was a member of an orthodox church when one of my children had a severe illness, and had three different doctors, but found no help. One day a friend stepped in, and when I told her that the doctors could not help the child, this friend, who was a Christian Scientist, said that evil has no power over God's children. Instantly I prayed to God with a new faith, and the child was healed. There was no relapse, and that is now eight years ago. Finding this truth, I became a Christian Scientist, but a few years after my faith was tried by a severe attack of illness. Through the understanding of Christian Science, however, all was overcome without material means. I thank God, and our Leader, for this glorious truth that makes us free from sin and sickness. I am the mother of eight children,—our family with the parents making ten in all,—and I have gained all my knowledge of this truth by reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy.—Mrs. Eliza MacKenzie, St. Paul, Minn.
