It is with love and thankfulness to God, and gratitude to our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, that I send this testimony. My mother and I became interested in Christian Science through the healing of my aunt. I attended the church with her occasionally, but on being asked why I did not try Christian Science treatment, replied that Science could not help me. I however finally decided to give it a trial, having suffered from bowel disorder since birth. The last few years before my healing I never retired without taking some kind of medicine for this difficulty. With just four Christian Science treatments I was entirely healed, and have remained so. After this healing I immediately began to study the Bible, and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. By reading these books I have been healed of female trouble, and enabled to lay aside glasses that had been worn most of the time since childhood. I have also been helped in many other ways.

I had been a member of another church all my life. My mother always took me to all of the services when I was a child, but as I grew older I began to wonder why, if God was all powerful and all loving, He would allow His children to suffer. I therefore lost interest in the church and seldom attended. When I did go it was because my mother insisted, saying that it was my duty. But since Christian Science has come into my life I know that God is Truth, Love, and Life, omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient, and that He does not permit His children to suffer. As our Master said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."—Mrs. Awdrey L. Haskett, Indianapolis, Ind.
