Our experience in Christian Science is such a proof that "a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump," I feel it may help some one whose family has not yet been able to grasp this wonderful truth about God. I began to study Christian Science for the benefit of a younger sister, who needed some help more powerful than anything we had ever found in the way of material belief. It made a wonderful change in her life; she was healed of a violent temper, great unhappiness, and many physical ills. I very soon found out that I needed this truth quite as much as my sister did, and was helped in every way,—physically, mentally, and spiritually.

For over two years we were the only ones in our family who would accept the truth, and there were many times when it seemed very hard to see those we loved suffering from ills, mental and physical, which we knew could be healed in Christian Science; but we had been told to live and think the truth rather than talk it, and this we tried always to do, leaving each individual in our family in the care of divine Love. We knew all the time that God gives the same understanding to each of His children, and that some time they would know it. The result has been more than satisfactory. One statement of the Master has helped us very much, "And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto me."

At last a great need made my father turn to Christian Science for help, and he has been growing in understanding ever since. His life has been changed from one of intense fear and melancholy to a peaceful, happy, and useful one. He has been healed of a very severe form of sciatica, from which he had suffered for over thirty years. Next, my older sister, who had been unable to accept this truth during the four years we had been living by it, became convinced that Christian Science is the truth about God and man. She had suffered from a very severe case of nervous prostration for over a year, had had the help of one of the very best physicians in our city, had tried change of scene and climate, but came back no better than when she left. Then she asked for Christian Science treatment, and in a very short time was entirely restored. She is of course very happy, also grateful for this truth and the freedom it brings.
