Feeling that the time has come when I should testify to the many blessings which have come both to myself and family, through the study and application of Christian Science, I will give my experience. It is over ten years since I began this study, but for eight years prior to this Christian Science had been the only physican in my parents' home, so I cannot say that I was brought to this fount of blessing through physical healing; but many times since then I have had opportunities to prove its healing efficacy, and it has never been found wanting. During this time I have seen colds, catarrhal trouble in a very severe form, a severe injury to the ankle, and numerous other disease, melt away into their native nothingness as mist before a bright morning sun.

I will mention a recent case of healing. On a Monday evening I was attacked by what seemed to be a most serious case of illness. After working through the night for myself, resisting the error and declaring the truth of God's allness, I decided in the morning to have some help; so I telephoned to a practitioner, was treated during that day, and arose on Wednesday morning healed. I have been attending to my duties in the home and as a Reader in the local church ever since. I know that God, divine Mind, does "heal the sick through man, whenever man is governed by God" (Science and Health, p. 495). I am most grateful for this truth which has been revealed to us through our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy.
