A few years ago, after the birth of a child, I became sick in mind and body, and to my great sorrow I was obliged to leave the baby and seek help in other surroundings. As I did not seem to be gaining, despite the treatment of a specialist, and was unable to sleep, besides experiencing great pain internally whenever I attempted to take nourishment, I applied for help to my dear sister in London, who came at once and explained Christian Science to me. I took heart as I began to understand that God is Love and sendeth no disease, and that my wrong conceptions about God, and man in His image and likeness, needed to be corrected. I had believed I must die, as had another dear sister shortly before, but now I learned that there was no such thing as an hereditary disease, that it was only a man-made law, and that the law of divine Love alone governs all. Thus I daily gained in physical health and strength, sleep returned, and I was able to eat without suffering.

I thank God for having preserved me to my family, that I may point out to them as well as to many others the way from sense to Soul. Mrs. Eddy says, "Love is the liberator" (Science and Health, p. 225). I am deeply grateful to her, as well as to all who have helped me in gaining the spiritual understanding of the law of Love which sets us free.
