I wish to tell my gladness for Christian Science

I wish to tell my gladness for Christian Science. I can truthfully say that I have never turned to it for aid without receiving what I asked. My little girl, who weighed but four and a half pounds when born, was a miserable, sickly child for two years. At that time I took up the study of Christian Science, and she began to improve steadily and has been healed of all the ills that so-called premature birth had seemed to fasten upon her. One ailment was a chronic bowel difficulty, but as I studied Science and Health that gradually passed away. I had before then done all that human love could do, but with no result. The child has also had many other healings in cases of colds, severe falls, etc., and she has been protected from all the so-called children's diseases even while exposed to them. From a stunted child she has grown into big, strong, healthy schoolgir, with a great love for the truth. Recently she said that the thing for which she was most thankful was having been taught that "divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need" (Science and Health, p. 494).

Christian Science is our mainstay, not only physically but morally and mentally. The joy which comes when the mists of sense are lifted and fresh understanding enlightens all my thoughts, far exceeds the material benefits, although I give divine Mind the glory for all. Even before I can, to mortal sense, see the answer to my prayer, I am glad that I can understand what Jesus meant when he said he knew that the Father had heard him and had answered him.
