It is with deep gratitude to God, and to Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, that I desire to give my testimony of its healing power and spiritual uplifting. Eighteen months ago I was entirely healed of bowel trouble, from which I had suffered at times ever since childhood, also of stomach trouble of over ten years' duration, together with other physical and mental troubles. Before trying Christian Science I was continually taking medicine, but was constantly growing worse. I finally decided to try physical culture, with strict dieting, not eating any meats or cooked foods of any kind. I kept this up for some time, and found that I was growing more irritable and nervous every day, besides losing in weight; but the worst feature of all was that my stomach and bowels were getting worse instead of better, so that I gave this up thoroughly discouraged.

I had seen what Christian Science had done for my mother and sister, and knew there must be something in it, although I was not willing to try it then. Having heard much, however, about The Mother Church, and being in Boston shortly after I had given up the treatment mentioned, I decided to attend the Sunday afternoon service. I was so impressed by the beautiful edifice, the simple yet satisfactory service, and more than anything else by the happy and intelligent countenances all about me, that I thought if Christian Science could make this great number of people look so well and contented it could surely heal me. Before the service was over I had decided to begin treatment at once, for a feeling came to me that God never made me sick, and that I could be healed and have perfect health. I began treatment the following day, and God's promise did come true, for I was healed of the stomach trouble in the first treatment, and in four weeks I had been healed of the other trouble. Since the first treatment I have taken no medicine or material remedies of any kind, Christian Science having proved more than sufficient for all my needs. Besides the blessing of good health, I am very thankful for the spiritual blessing, for a better understanding of the Bible, and for a feeling of more brotherly love toward my neighbors.
