For about eight years my only physician has been Christian Science, for which words cannot express my gratitude. I first turned to it for the healing of a skin disease. At times my face was so disfigured I would not go out without wearing a veil. After trying all kinds of material remedies and receiving no benefit, I turned to Christian Science. I had been living on a light diet for some time, but the practitioner told me to eat anything I wanted. In one week I was healed of two chronic diseases. I did not keep up the treatments for the skin disease, however, as I thought it should have been overcome at once; but after a year or more I asked for help again and was healed in three weeks.

We have had many beautiful proofs of God's care since that time, and I am especially grateful for the help Christian Science is in the raising of children. My daughter has attended the Christian Science Sunday school for the past seven years, and the truth she has learned there has brought her untold blessings. She has been healed of mumps, measles, whooping cough, severe headaches, and weak eyes. My husband became interested in Christian Science through being healed of kidney trouble of seventeen years' standing. Above all we are grateful for the demonstration of God's power a year ago when a baby boy was born.

I am grateful for the privilege of being a student of Christian Science. The daily study of the Lesson-Sermon does unfold all truth that is promised in the Bible and in Science and Health. Words are not sufficient to express my gratitude to Mrs. Eddy, and I wish to express my sincere thanks to all who have helped me along the way.
