It is with a grateful heart that I give my testimony, hoping it may help others as I have been helped. I can certainly say that I would not be here if it had not been for Christian Science. I was ill for thirteen years, and tried physicians without number, and had all kinds of medicine. About five years ago I first heard of Christian Science through a dear lady who came to our house one evening. I began to pour out my complaints to her, but she looked at me a few moments, then said that God could heal me of all my suffering. She then told me how she had been healed of a supposedly incurable disease through Christian Science; but I only turned a deaf ear, as no one in this community had then heard of it and it sounded strange to me.

During the next three months I suffered more than tongue can tell. I had two good physicians who did all they could for me, and I was taking their medicine every fifteen minutes night and day without any relief; indeed I seemed to get worse every minute. One night I cried to my husband to help me. He hurried to me and found that I had had a stroke and could not walk, so he carried me into the next room and started to call a physician, but I said I would never take another drop of medicine; that if I lived until morning I would find out what Christian Science had to offer.
