It is about two years since I began the study of Christian Science, and I wish to add my name to those who have told of the power of this grand truth to heal from sin and sickness. I did not come to it for the physical healing, but was told of God as Love; and I found the Christian Science idea of God to be just what I had been looking for. I had belonged to an orthodox church, but withdrew because it did not give me the peace and happiness which I thought should belong to one who was being saved. I was told that if I did not keep all the commandments I would be punished eternally. I did not see any one keeping them all, and I could not, hard as I tried, so I decided to give up trying and "have a good time" while I was here. Then Christian Science came to me and showed me the right way. It taught me that "the belief in sin is punished so long as the belief lasts" (Science and Health, p. 497). I am so thankful to Mrs. Eddy for showing us the way out of those man-made beliefs. My wife has been healed of rheumatic trouble, headaches, and other ailments too numerous to mention. I have overcome headaches and other minor troubles. I am a traveling man, and find God an ever-present help. When I do what is right I never want for anything, for "divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need" (Science and Health, p. 494).

Though I have never seen Mrs. Eddy, it would be strange if I were not grateful to her for all she has done for me and mine. I can repay her only by living what she has taught and by bringing the truth to others with "signs following."
