It is with heartfelt gratitude that I testify to benefits received in Christian Science. A few years ago I met with an accident which resulted in a broken leg and a badly injured ankle. There was much good work done for me in Christian Science at that time; but although I did not seem to be greatly helped physically by the treatment, I now know that I was healed of much of which I was not then cognizant. I also know that had I been healed speedily of that difficulty, I should not be where I stand in Christian Science today. Although I wanted to be healed and relieved of the pain, I did not wish to give up my own way in any particular, but wanted my own and God's way too. I found out I could not have both, and by study I have learned that just in proportion as I am willing to trust our heavenly Father for guidance, do I experience the peace that passeth understanding.

I have been healed of many ills in the past two years. Physical disorders have vanished, such as chronic headache, throat trouble, and backache. I am, however, more truly grateful for the overcoming of self than for the physical benefits. I am being healed of an ungovernable temper, resentment, criticism, and many other unlovely traits of character.
