With a thankful heart I send this testimony to tell a few of the many blessings we have received since coming into Christian Science. It prevents disease as well as cures it, when rightly applied. While our son was at camp, and the influenza seemed so prevalent, he was able to overcome the fear of it by clinging close to Principle, as taught in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. One day I fell down the cellar stairs and for a few moments felt as if my spine was terribly hurt, but by clinging to God's promises and declaring the truth of being I was able to get up. By the time my husband reached me, I was able to walk up the steps and then eat supper. I continued with my work and there was only a slight feeling of soreness occasionally.

When we first took up the study of Christian Science the remark was made that if any of our family ever got appendicitis, it would end fatally as we did not believe in operations and medicine. Being new in Science at the time I felt somewhat uneasy, but that disease also has been proved powerless. Our daughter had it in its worst form, with peritonitis, but by the help of a faithful practitioner the disease was overcome and vanished into its native nothingness. At one time I had kidney trouble and my back pained me terribly. My husband asked a practitioner to treat me, and in ten minutes the pain was gone and I was at the supper table eating with the rest of the family.
