I would like to express my gratitude for Christian Science...

I would like to express my gratitude for Christian Science, and to tell some of the blessings that have come into my life through the understanding of Truth during the past three years. When, as the result of business reverses, my husband's health failed some three years ago, I was practically without friends and with very little money on hand, his sickness and bedts having consumed almost everything. About that time Christian Science found me, and since then I have been able to keep a comfortable home together under most trying conditions. My little boy, who is eleven years old, was healed about two years ago of a stomach trouble of seven years' standing. He went to Gemany last summer all alone, remaining three months, and was not sick a day.

Before my marriage, I spent about eight years in hospitals and in private practice as a trained nurse. During the Spanish-American war I was sent to Camp Thomas and other places to minister to the sick soldiers, and I realize how great an effort it was to overcome my belief in the reality of sickness and death. I had become very melancholy, and at times wished for death, which I thought would relieve me of my trying problems. This condition has passed away, and now I rejoice greatly in the possession of that "grain of Christian Science" which "does wonders for mortals" (Science and Health, p. 449). I was healed of a rupture I had had from childhood, and which the doctor had said might prove dangerous after the birth of my boy. I wore a support for a number of years, and one day, about six months ago, I was surprised to find that the condition had been overcome.

I thank God for leading me into this wondrous truth, and I hope some day to be able to help others in the same loving and faithful way in which I have been treated by those who have helped me to see the light of divine Love. My gratitude is no less sincere for our dear Leader, who has done so much for suffering humanity by giving us the text-book of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by which we can work out our every problem.
