I joined an orthodox church at the age of fourteen and tried to live up to my profession, but for a number of years before I began the study of Christian Science I was not satisfied. I kept reaching for something which might help me to understand the Bible better, but I did not find the light for which I was seeking until I commenced the study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."

It was in a very dark hour when a kind lady came to tell me of the wonderful cures that were being made by Christian Science. I had never heard of it only as I had heard it ridiculed, but I was ready to try anything to have my daughter healed. I commenced the study of the textbook at once, and have studied it faithfully and prayerfully in connection with the Bible and Quarterly ever since, now seven years, and it becomes more precious every day. I have never used material remedies of any kind since I began to study Christian Science, nor have I had the least desire to do so. My daughter was healed of chronic throat trouble and helped in many other ways. I have been healed of a very severe rheumatic trouble. My healing was slow, but two years have passed and there has been no return of the disease. I have also been healed of an ailment which had given me much trouble for eight years, and another from which I had suffered untold agony for ten years. For all this I am very thankful, but the spiritual help I have received through the study of the Bible and the Christian Science text-book is much more to me than all else. It has made me a better woman, enabled me to be more forgiving and to love my neighbor better. Words cannot express my gratitude to dear Mrs. Eddy for what she has done and is doing for all who will accept the truth as taught by her. I can only show my appreciation by striving to be a better Christian each day than the day before. I thank God for the desire He has given me to grow in grace and in the knowledge of the truth.

Mrs. Mary A. Whybrow, Bloomfield, Ia.
