Christian Science has so completely changed the meaning...

Christian Science has so completely changed the meaning of life to me, and has brought me so much happiness, peace, and contentment, that I shall ever deem it a privilege to tell others of it. Perchance some other weary and disappointed mortal may take heart and come to the living waters to learn the truth about God and man. I was a member of an orthodox church for many years, but it brought me no comfort, and the ceremonial of the church appealed only to the senses. The mystery of life, and the strangely inharmonious conditions in and out of the church, puzzled and discouraged me; all seemed vanity and vexation of spirit.

After enduring many trials and disappointments, as a very tired child I turned to Christian Science, read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and was healed. Some years before I had had the great privilege of class instruction under Mrs. Eddy, but the seed seemed to fall on stony ground, and it was not until after I had wandered in the wilderness many years (to mortal sense) and been beaten with many stripes, that I was spiritually awakened and the good seed began to bear fruit. I emerged from the darkness of mortal beliefs, and was "born again;" then came "the awakening from the dream of life in matter, to the great fact that God is the only Life" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 16). Since taking Science and Health for my daily guide in studying the Scriptures, it has indeed made a new heaven and a new earth to me. Mrs. Eddy teaches that Christian Science is a demonstrable science and that it is not understood until demonstrated. It is our demonstration that proves to us the truth, and this is our safeguard from all evil each and every day.

My heart goes out in loving recognition to our dear Leader for all she has given us and all mankind; for the rediscovery of the truth that heals the sick, the sinful, and the sorrowful, and enables us to fulfil the command of our Master to preach the gospel and heal the sick. The garment of Truth cannot be divided, as we apprehend after gaining our spiritual light in divine Science, and when we preach the true gospel, or glad tidings of great joy, we heal the sick, physically, morally, and spiritually.

Testimony of Healing
It is with the deepest gratitude to God, and to our dear...
