I first became interested in Christian Science three years...

I first became interested in Christian Science three years ago while visiting an aunt who had been healed in Science. At that time I was suffering a great deal from extreme inaction of the bowels and was taking everything that was recommended to me. After I had been with my aunt a few days she asked me why I did not try Christian Science. I was very much discouraged and did not have much faith in it, but decided to give it a fair trial. Before going to the practitioner I destroyed my medicine, and after talking to her I felt that I would do anything to be able to have the spiritual understanding and to reflect the love she did. After returning to my aunt's house I began to read in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. I lay awake most of the night, it seemed to me, repeating over and over the statement, "Mind is the source of all movement" (Science and Health, p. 283). The next day I telephoned to the practitioner that conditions were unchanged, but she told me that all was well and for me to continue my reading, so I kept at it diligently all day. That night I had the first natural action of the bowels for over a year. I have never used medicine since my healing. I had undergone eight operations for tubercular glands, but that trouble and many other ailments have been entirely overcome through Christian Science.

I am indeed thankful to God and grateful to Mrs. Eddy for the many blessings divine Love is unfolding to me each day.—(Miss) Helen Hughes, Boise, Idaho.
