Realizing that it is often through the reading of a testimony that a sufferer is led to look into Christian Science for help, I gladly give mine. From childhood I was never considered strong, and when I was in high school I began to take medical treatment and continued to do so until I learned of Christian Science. I managed to finish the high school course, but when I began to talk of college our family physician said it must be given up, as I could never expect in my state of ill health to complete the course. I managed to teach school for three years, at the end of which time I completely broke down, being under a doctor's care for a long time. I was not then allowed to do anything, and up to the time I became interested in Christian Science I was very much limited in my work.

It is now over five years since I came to Christian Science, other members of my family being interested over two years before I saw that I needed it. Previous to my acceptance of this truth I had been a church-member for thirteen years, but during that time I had much illness, although I endeavored to live up to its teachings to the best of my ability. It was through a Christian Science lecture that I finally grasped its message. While listening to it I saw where I had made many mistakes; I found I had been worshiping a God who had a human form, although the Bible tells us that God is Spirit; I had been believing that God sent sickness, and that He knew evil, yet the Bible told me that God is "of purer eyes than to behold evil;" also that He "saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good."
