I send this testimony in loving gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me, with the hope that it may be the means of helping others. For years I was a great sufferer from severe headache, and one day during an attack, a dear friend, a Christian Scientist, came and talked to me, telling me about Christian Science and what it would do for me. She loaned me a copy of Science and Health and told me to read it. I also had asthma in its worst form, so that for weeks I could not lie down, and my husband often feared I could not live until morning, I was so ill. We had several doctors, but they did me no good; the last two said there was no medicine which would help me, and that I should travel until I found a climate that would relieve me, though nothing would cure me. I had, however, begun to read Science and Health, and by studying this book and taking absent treatment from a practitioner, I soon began to get better, and in less than two months I was entirely well. This was over three years ago, and I have had no headache or asthma since. I have also been healed of rheumatism, nervousness, and other ailments.

For this healing I thank our heavenly Father, but most of all I am thankful for the spiritual uplift that I have received since I turned to Christian Science. I thank God for the brave woman who made the way plain to us.
