I am thankful for the early training and shelter of a Christian home. When, however, I gave my whole thought to material home-keeping I was weary and not happy, for I was being led to see that thought must first be given to keeping the mental house a fit dwelling place for God. In 1912, after the birth of my first child, I passed into what seemed the valley of the shadow. I recovered, but only to experience three years of intense weariness, as health was not regained. Then I was again plunged into the despair, helplessness, and hopelessness of a living death, due to what is called myelities. The doctors could do nothing for me, and so I began to study Christian Science as a last resort, thinking only that it might brighten my remaining days. I heard of it first from a sister in Calgary, Canada. Within the first month of study my right hand, previously useless, was restored to its normal condition, and with this healing came the knowledge that the healing power of Truth is as available now as when Jesus of Nazareth healed the sick centuries ago.

I am very grateful for the loving help received from a Christian Scientist here, for the light that radiated from her, so that I longed (even when scarcely believing I should ever know complete healing) to have her religion. For the last two years there has been steady improvement and there have been days when my heart has seemed bursting with joy unspeakable for better health than I have ever known before. I am very thankful for the help Christian Science has been with the two little ones, that the ills which come up are speedily banished with the truth that makes free. I now think of them as God's children, not mine.
