Six years ago I was a miserable invalid with no hope of recovery, and in addition a great sorrow had come to me. I had been treated by many doctors, among them four of the leading nerve specialists in London, but they failed to cure me. As a last resource I thought I would try Christian Science, though I had no great faith in it and no knowledge of its teachings.

I was put in the way of obtaining a copy of Science and Health, and after reading a few pages found I was healed. Naturally my gratitude was intense, so I began to study that wonderful book, and I find as the years roll on that it becomes more and more enlightening and makes the Bible inexpressibly more helpful than ever before. Christian Science teaches us to make a friend of God. Nothing is too trivial to lay before Him, and a load of care and responsibility is lifted from us when we rely on His guidance in all things. I so often feel inclined to rejoice, and do rejoice, in this happy feeling of God's nearness.
