I have been healed of several afflictions through the earnest study and application of Christian Science, and the aid of a kind practitioner,—organic and stomach trouble, rheumatism, and enlarged joints of my hands and feet. Soft corns, also, have disappeared.

A dear friend who heard I was suffering with stomach trouble brought me some literature, and told me she had been cured in one treatment of the same disease, and that her daughter was healed of a throat trouble in one absent treatment. She said she did not know much about Christian Science, but had begun its study and knew it would help me, if I would try it. I read some of the literature, but did not seem to get any understanding, so I went to a practitioner. The first treatment gave me instantaneous relief. She also guided me to the study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I studied this book all the spare time I had, and knew that if I could put the teaching therein into practice, I would be healed. I went back to the practitioner the same week in order to express my gratitude for her work already done, and had another treatment with the result that I was greatly helped both mentally and physically. I continued the study of Science and Health, and at the end of three weeks was completely healed of stomach trouble of six years' standing. I felt so grateful for this healing that I asked for no other relief, but took up the study of the Lesson-Sermons, attended church regularly and with a sincere desire to gain a better understanding of this great truth which had healed me, and earnestly prayed for more light.

A desire came to me to give to others of what I had received both in spiritual and material ways. Channels opened. Wherever I saw need, in church and outside, I tried to do my best. I also learned that I must study where and when to cast my bread upon the waters. To say little and do more, always gave the best results.
