About two years ago I came to Christian Science for the healing of stomach and bowel trouble of three years' standing and was cured in a week's treatment. With the exception of a slight attack a few months later this healing has been perfect and permanent. Since that time my health has been better than ever before; I had never been strong from childhood. Three doctors had been tried for the above trouble, the last one saying I would have to submit to an operation; but this I would not do, as I had a horror of such things. Having heard just a little of Christian Science through a cousin who had been healed of the same trouble, I decided to take treatment, and was healed very quickly, as I have said. I read Science and Health faithfully, and it seemed very beautiful to me. It certainly is a "Key to the Scriptures."

I have also been healed of severe colds and influenza. While very grateful for all these healings, I am equality so for the knowledge that God does hear and answer prayer, and that there was none to oppose me when I turned to Christian Science. This did not seem so much to me at first, but when I hear how hard it has been for some who have had to stand alone, I feel that I have much for which to be thankful. I have tried Christian Science in many ways, and always find that when I do my part by right thinking and right knowing, God is ready to help me. Both my parents having passed on several years before I came into Christian Science, and the only member of the family besides myself in this city being a younger sister, it seems so comforting to know that I can always lean on God.
