As I feel more and more grateful for Christian Science,...

As I feel more and more grateful for Christian Science, after five years of its study, I will at least try to express something of what I feel for its many blessings. After having been for nearly all my life what the world calls an atheist, and having been for a long time in great physical distress, I began to investigate Christian Science by reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. I was immediately awakened to the truth of its teachings, and was, with the aid of a practitioner, healed of an intestinal disorder after more than ten years of suffering. I was also healed of rheumatism, and of a stiffened knee-joint.

Before coming into Christian Science I had suffered for almost a year from an attack of illness, but since coming into Christian Science I was healed in two hours of a similar attack which seemed even worse than the former one, and this without the aid of a practitioner. A discontented disposition had made me a wanderer on the face of the earth for a number of years, and though I was usually successful wherever I went, I was never satisfied. This too has been entirely overcome, and I am now contented and happy. I have also been healed of a sense of hatred, and of many other forms of sin. I am deeply grateful for the purified thought and life that I am beginning to reflect.

For these blessings and for many others, and especially for being able to love the Bible as I now do, I feel that I can never repay Mrs. Eddy.—Ira Botts, Kansas City, Mo.
