It has been nearly four years since the light of Christian Science first penetrated the darkness and despair that filled my life, and led as a beacon light to a haven of rest. Our six months' old baby was suffering from a skin disease which had spread over his entire body, and required constant care both night and day. Our little girl, four years old, was suffering from attacks of stomach trouble and an extreme nervousness which manifested itself chiefly in a twitching of the eyelids. Both children were under the care of a child specialist, who had prescribed for them a most rigid diet. I shall not forget the burden I felt when, because of this diet, the physicians said it rested with me whether the children got well, and that probably the little girl would never be able to eat in a normal way. But I rejoice to have learned in Christian Science that all these laws were man-made, and that God's law has rendered them null and void.

It is scarcely to be wondered at that I was weakened physically as well as spiritually, and was at times confined to my bed. At this time some relatives of my husband wrote that they were coming to our city, and this seemed the last straw, for we felt that we could not entertain them. But God's ways are not our ways, and when they came they were ever ready and willing to help, sacrificing their own pleasures for our good. They recommended that we try Christian Science for the baby. At first I would not listen, but occasionally they mentioned different healings they had experienced or witnessed, so that I became more and more interested.
