I am thankful that I can testify to the healing power of Christian Science, for I know it is the truth that makes us free and teaches us how to find the kingdom of heaven.

From early womanhood until the past year I scarcely knew what health was. For two years I suffered from a terrible female trouble, also extreme nervousness. My ailments were too numerous to mention, but one of the most serious was an abnormal growth, from which I can gladly say I was entirely freed through Christian Science. It was just five years ago that I underwent an operation. I had employed four or five different physicians, who were exceedingly kind and did all that lay in their power for me, but all the time I was getting more discouraged and despondent. I wished more than once that the dear Lord would take me, for I had no desire to live and feel so miserable.

For months I kept away from doctors, for I knew if I sent for one he would tell me that I must go to the hospital again; but finally the pain was so intense that I felt obliged to call in a physician. He told me I would never be well unless I underwent another operation; that I would linger for some time, but could never do any work. I was more despondent than ever, and my heart went out to my family, for I thought I could not get well. It was right after this that my brother asked me to try Christian Science, and I consented. He told me that I need not suffer, for God is All-in-all and I must trust to Him. I commenced having Christian Science treatment, and I was not long in learning that God is good and that He is indeed the only physician. It was just one year ago that I accepted Christian Science, and we have not used any medicine since. Our family is now one of health and happiness, and harmony has taken the place of discord. Instead of being sick and a burden to my loved ones, I can now take the entire care of the household.
