From early childhood the statement, "She is a nervous child," greeted my ears, and the law that "like begets like" was fully verified as I grew into womanhood. After my marriage chronic invalidism and medicine were my inseparable companions. At the end of ten years medicine had been exhausted, and I found myself wasted to a skeleton, with just strength enough to try a sanitarium for rest, diet, and outdoor life. There, for two years, everything that human love, care, and money could bestow was given to me, and at the end of that time, as I had gained sufficiently to walk about, my husband brought me home, with a nurse to care for me. The fear of food was so great that my diet was limited to a very few things. At the end of fourteen months I yielded to the advice of friends and sent for a Christian Science practitioner, though particular care was taken to tell him that I had no faith in Christian Science. Notwithstanding this, and the fact that my prejudice against the Bible was so great I at first refused to study it in connection with the Lesson-Sermons, I gradually gained strength enough to do my own housework. After five months' treatment, class instruction was taken, and at the end of three years chronic bowel trouble, sleeplessness, female disorders, and fear of food had disappeared.

Now, after seven years' daily study of the Lesson-Sermons and practice of their teaching, I have learned to love the truth found in the Bible and in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. Sickness has been replaced by health, despair by hope, melancholy by joy, and hatred is yielding to love. I feel I can best express my gratitude by so living the truth that others may desire to find the kingdom of heaven, which is at hand for all who seek it.—Belle Cady Plummer, Stockton, Cal.
