I feel it a duty as well as a privilege to send my testimony to the Sentinel for publication, thinking it may be of help to others. Living as I do in the Cascade Mountains, I am somewhat isolated from all church influences; still there is no loneliness or feeling of lack of God's care and love. On the contrary, I am contented and happy, knowing that God is my continual guide, ever near in all my daily needs. I have had many good demonstrations of God's love and power. My granddaughter, five years of age, came to me saying she had the toothache. I took her in my arms and maintained the declaration that we are in God's kingdom, which is spiritual, and that there is no pain where God is. In a few moments she was asleep. She slept an hour, and when she awoke the toothache was gone, and it has never returned. For this and many other blessings I am indeed thankful, and also grateful for Mrs. Eddy's knowledge of religion. What a sweet assurance of eternal bliss comes through living the life of a Christian Scientist! I am thankful each day that I am a follower of this teaching.

My husband was healed of an attack of rheumatism in fifteen minutes after treatment was begun. On Nov. 14, 1914, I fell on the sidewalk and struck my hip on the iron scraper. To mortal sense I was badly hurt, but my first thought was, "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need" (Science and Health, p. 494), then that as God's child I am in His kingdom here and now, therefore I cannot be hurt; and I was instantly healed.

Last September I was badly wounded by my cat, and as a result fear crept in. I then applied to a Christian Science practitioner for help. Partial relief came in thirty-six hours, but the first twenty-four hours the pain was so great that I had no sleep. After a week I undertook the working out of my own problem, feeling that God was my help. A permanent healing was realized in ten days, and I can never thank God enough for what Christian Science has done for me.
