When I visited a Christian Science practitioner I was in the depths of despair and almost mentally unbalanced; indeed I had not passed a normal day in thirty years. The practitioner asked me if I believed in God, and I replied that I did; in fact I longed to understand something of the Bible, yet it always confused me. After treatment I went away feeling much better. The physical ailment was slow to yield, but in two weeks' time the mental condition was overcome. I knew then that the leaves of the Bible were for the healing of the nations and decided to work out my own problem. I began to study the Bible, also "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and to attend the Christian Science services. At the end of the year I was a new creature, and my gain in weight was a source of much joy, as I had been a mere shadow for the previous thirty years.

It is my desire to grow in grace so that I may be able to help others. For something over six years I have depended wholly upon God for help in every trial, and am not only well but happier than ever before. I hope this testimony will be a source of strength to some one who seems to yield slowly to the physical healing, for I find much joy in giving it.—Mary A. Howe, Oklahoma City, Okla.
