Before I became interested in Christian Science I had been a slave nearly all my life to fear and worry, and I do not think two harder masters can be found. Through the understanding which I have gained from the study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, this bondage has been broken, and I am striving every day to know that these beliefs have no real power.

Before we had any knowledge of Christian Science, my husband told me many times that he felt I would have a very bright crown in heaven, for in our old understanding we thought the greater my ills and suffering, the brighter would be my reward, as lingering sickness was supposed to be a source of purification. Little did I understand that it was all within myself, but thought it was God afflicting me. I truly regret to say how erroneous my concept of God had become, but in those days God had grown to mean very little to me. I had almost ceased to pray (as God had never answered my prayers to be made well and strong); but how different is my concept now, for through Christian Science I have learned to think of God as my dear heavenly Father; as Love, who gives all good, and could not send sin, sickness, and disease, for He knows no evil. If I had nothing else to be thankful for, I could sing a pean of praise to have learned of this one truth, though this is far from being my only blessing.
