I have often wished to tell of the many blessings I have received through Christian Science, and as I was reading the Lesson-Sermon one day the thought came to me to write my testimony at once. About five years ago I first heard of Christian Science when I seemed to be the most unhappy mortal that ever lived. Through the loss of an infant daughter, whom I then believed God had taken from me, I became utterly disheartened, and in consequence had several physical ills, such as nervous exhaustion, heart and stomach trouble, etc., so many, in fact, that I never thought I could get rid of them all. I was treated by at least five different doctors, who gave me temporary relief and said I might be well of some ailments within a year or so; while others said I might never be well. The only thing was to try to get it off my mind, which, thanks to Christian Science, I have been able to do.

I came into Christian Science through the healing of a dear sister in Port Angeles, Wash., who wrote asking us to try it; but when we first heard of it we, like many others, laughed at what we supposed Christian Science to be. We then decided to take a trip to my sister's; and when we arrived there I began to take treatment, and discarding all material remedies leaned wholly on God. Aided by the earnestness and faithfulness of a practitioner, I found myself gaining day by day, the results in three weeks' time being such perfect health and harmony as I had not known for a long time.

I owe all I am to Christian Science, and am grateful to all those who tried to help me in this blessed truth. I have had the privilege of class instruction, and for this and all the blessings I have received through Christian Science, which our beloved Leader has given to all mankind if they will only accept it, I am truly thankful. If but one sufferer finds encouragement from my testimony and receives help thereby, I know that others will receive the blessing, for "divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need" (Science and Health, p. 494).
