With a heart overflowing with gratitude to God, and to our beloved Leader, I feel I must write what Christian Science has done for me and mine. In looking back, I find that each day is indeed big with blessing for me, when I think of what was and now is. I was an invalid and under the care of physicians for many years, suffering daily, never being free from pain for a single instant. I had had this trouble as long as I could remember; then when my son was born, other conditions arose which I was told made an operation necessary, and this being my only hope of ever becoming a well woman, I consented to it.

It is now over nine years since my dear mother was healed in Christian Science. At that time I was preparing to enter the hospital for this operation, but seeing her wonderful healing, I wondered if I too could be healed, for I dreaded an operation. My joy may be imagined when I was told that Christian Science could heal me. I felt it was the truth, and although knowing nothing about it, I believed, and in three months I was healed. Words are inadequate to express what I feel, never having been able to do or enjoy anything, and then at the end of three months to find myself well, free from pain, free to do everything I had longed to do and far more; to be satisfied, contented, happy all day long; no more crying or wanting to die, but a longing to be better, to do better, to improve my time in understanding that which had made me well.

This did not come all at once, but by constant study of the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. I have thus been learning my relation to God, and my one desire is to be about my Father's business.
