I feel it a duty as well as a very great privilege to tell of a few of the many, blessings which have come to me since learning of Christian Science and accepting its teachings. My desires and thoughts today are so very unlike those which I entertained when, over five years ago, I received my first help through Christian Science treatment, that I seem hardly able to tell of the conditions from which I have been made free.

One of the first healings was that of chronic bowel disorder. About eleven years ago I underwent a surgical operation for an abdominal trouble, and it was thought by the surgeon that the bowel difficulty would be much lessened, if not entirely overcome, as a result of operating for the other internal trouble. This did not prove to be so, however, and I did not receive any lasting benefit until I was healed through Christian Science; nevertheless, I feel most kindly toward the good man who tried to help me. Severe headaches, with which I suffered from early childhood and for which I had tried all sorts of material means to get some relief, have almost entirely disappeared from my consciousness. Only as I am willing to have one God, who is always good, to love instead of hate, trust instead of fear, rejoice instead of sorrow, forgive instead of condemn, am I able to know and to do God's will in a far greater sense than I had ever dreamed of doing, or in fact had ever thought I would care to do, until awakened somewhat to the truth of being through the study of Christian Science.
