To tell of the many blessings that have come to me through the study of Christian Science would be like trying to count the stars or to number the sands on the seashore. My appreciation for this practical Science is boundless, for I have been lifted from the depths of agnosticism to the heights of faith. Having been reared under the belief of spiritualism, predestination, and future punishment, I found myself when quite young without hope, and doubting the existence of a God. I drifted on in this state of mind for years, in darkness, discontented and selfish, looking for happiness but finding none, until I reached the point where I was a mental wreck. At this time, about six years ago, I turned to Christian Science for help, as I had not succeeded in my work as a teacher in the public schools and also was laboring under a severe attack of influenza. I gladly lifted my eyes to the hills whence cometh help, and I can truthfully say that help did come, and abundantly, for God is good, and giveth without measure to those who seek Him aright.

At times my progress has seemed slow, but it has been sure, and the thing I am most grateful for is the spiritual uplift,—that pure, exalting influence which follows the application of Science, and which lifts us above the false pleasures of material sense. I am indeed thankful for the periodicals, the Sentinel, the Journal, and the Monitor, and to the board of lectureship. Above all I am grateful to our dear Leader, who so bravely faced the world to reveal the way of salvation to suffering humanity.
