When my husband and I turned to Christian Science,...

When my husband and I turned to Christian Science, eight years ago, we had many physical ills, while fear and anxiety for the future seemed to reign in our home much of the time. I had been a trained nurse, was a church member, and believed that God sent our various afflictions; therefore, that we must bear them as best we could until released by death. Fortunately for us, a loyal Scientist saw our great need, and with loving persistence persuaded us that there was hope. I commenced to read the Journal, and a minor ailment, which physicians can only relieve, was healed. From this we took fresh courage, and began to read Science and Health, the text-book of Christian Science, together with the Bible. I wanted to see if Jesus really intended that we should do the works that he did. I knew the Bible said so, but I had never believed it was for us. In a very short time, however, I was convinced that Jesus meant just what he said,—"He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also."

About this time our little boy of three years awakened one night with a dreaded throat trouble. We had no telephone, our practitioner was some distance away, and according to my medical training immediate relief was necessary. Well we knew that our time had come to decide for God or go back to materia medica. I knew only too well how far from sure one can be of what medicine will do, and we quickly decided for God. With a few Bible texts that I could remember—God's promises to care for those who trust in Him—we clung steadfastly to Truth, and in a very short time the child was asleep and did not awaken until morning. This was proof positive to us that Christian Science is the "way," and we have striven ever since to live as Jesus taught, his teaching having been explained and made applicable for us here and now by our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy.
