I wish to express my gratitude for what Christian Science...
I wish to express my gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me, both spiritually and physically. Coming from a family of eleven children, all of whom had succumbed one by one to a dreaded disease, until only my mother, one brother and myself were left, I was held constantly in the thought that I, too, would finally go the same way; consequently I was very delicate, and was always dosing myself with some kind of medicine or under the care of a physician.
When my mother passed away I went to live with an aunt, and shortly was led to take up the study of Christian Science. At first I only sought for the physical healing, but after learning something of the spiritual benefit that is derived from this teaching I lost sight of the physical and sought earnestly after the peace that "passeth all understanding." In about a year I began to notice a marked improvement in my health, and in two years my physical condition was almost perfect. From being a delicate creature weighing only ninety-seven pounds, I became a healthy woman and at the present time weigh about one hundred and sixty.
About two years ago I was, however, brought very low with a severe attack of liver and stomach trouble. I had had attacks for about a year previous to this, but had always been able to meet them with what knowledge I possessed of the truth. The time finally came, however, when I was unable to meet the trouble and had to remain home from the office and take to my bed. My people, none of whom are Scientists, were very much alarmed at my condition, as my color turned from white to dark yellow all over my body and I suffered intense pain. In fact, I was told by one member of the family that she considered my condition very serious and she thought I ought to call a physician. I told her I preferred a Christian Science practitioner, so one was called. I had not been able, previous to my first treatment, to lie down with any comfort, but that night I went to bed and slept with comparative ease. That was on Saturday, and a week from the following Monday I was able to return to work and, except for a slight yellowish tinge to my skin and a considerable loss of flesh, was none the worse for my attack. For a time fear held me in its thraldom and I continued to take treatment, but after a short time I had regained my lost weight and could eat heartily what was put before me. I have not had an attack of the illness since and know, if I but do my part, I shall never have another.
