With deepest gratitude I testify to my experience in Christian Science during the past six years. I was ignorantly prejudiced against it, but was finally attracted to it by the spiritual interpretation of the first line of the Lord's Prayer as found on page 16 of Science and Health,—"Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious." From my earliest recollection I had thought very much about "Our Father which art in heaven;" and when I realized through Mrs. Eddy's phrasing what this really meant, I was greatly comforted.

Early in life I joined a church and tried to be a Christian, but God seemed far away. To mortal sense for years, even from childhood, I had been deceived and wronged by those of my own family, and as time passed on I was filled with resentment and worry, fear and unkind thoughts. I had prayed until it seemed as though the heavens must be brass, yet I clung to the thought that God is just, and so I came to Christian Science gladly, as a tired child goes to its mother's arms. I shall never forget the kind and loving look on the practitioner's face the first time she came to see me. She radiated peace and cheer, and patiently guided my footsteps along the path of truth. I came to Science only for comfort, as the teachings of my church did not satisfy me, and in this Science problems almost without number have been solved. My family have been greatly helped physically, along financial lines, and in spiritual ways.
