It is now six years since I first came into Christian Science

It is now six years since I first came into Christian Science. I had suffered for ten years with neuralgic or rheumatic trouble, and grew worse all the time, though I was treated by three doctors. Our family physician, who treated me for about five years, said I had spinal trouble; that he had done all he could for me, and advised me to go to some springs. While there, and afterwards, I suffered more than ever, and finally became almost helpless, and had to use crutches for three years or more. I spent a great deal of money for doctors and medicine, but nothing did me any good. I am so thankful that at last I found the right and only way to health,—the way that leads to the Divine healer, God.

A Scientist has treated me several times, and through her kindness and by the help of God I have always been relieved. I am getting better all the time, and now can walk without crutches and am able to attend to my business. Christian Science has been of great benefit to my whole family. Our youngest child, who is three years old, has never taken any medicine, and it is nearly five years since we have had a doctor for any of our family. I am thankful that there are so many who are taking such a great interest in this healing, and that the truth is known in their lives. I am sure that if mothers only knew of the help they could render their little ones, they would seek to understand this blessed Science, and thank God for the faith of her through whom He has restored to us the knowledge of His healing gospel. I am now enjoying the best of health.
