In my profession, that of teaching French, Christian Science has been of inestimable value. The understanding that man is the full expression of Mind uncovers the falsities that one must be born in a certain place to acquire excellence in speaking a foreign language; that he need be satisfied with anything less than perfection for his goal. Never having had the intention of teaching I had preferred to specialize rather than to work for a diploma, so that when I wished to turn my training to practical account, I did not seem to fit into the conventional educational routine, and was forced to find a place for myself. Through this pioneer work Christian Science was my never failing solace, and I learned to turn more constantly to divine Mind for guidance and inspiration. In consequence, I find myself in a professional environment capable of greater elasticity, and offering greater possibilities than the positions which were sought originally.

When first presented to me as a young girl, the explanation which Christian Science gives of a perfect God and perfect man (hence the impossibility and unreality of evil) satisfied my sense of right and justice so that I accepted it at once without reserve. Subsequent study has developed this instinctive turning to the truth into a firm conviction.

Christian Science has relieved me of the necessity of wearing glasses, of chronic neuralgia, and of nervous exhaustion, which would overtake me in the midst of a season and make absolute rest imperative. It has effaced the specter of limited strength, opportunity, and supply with the joyous, secure sense of God's infinite provision for His children. Naturally I am most grateful to our revered Leader, Mrs. Eddy, whose life work has made these blessings available.
