I am so full of gratitude for Christian Science that I would like to tell others what it has done for one who had lost all hope of ever being well again. Six years ago, through a loving sister, I was led to the study of Christian Science. At that time I was miserable in body and thought. I had been through five operations of the most serious nature, leaving me with what was called leakage of the heart, a sport on the left lung said to be tubercular, and a nervous disorder of the stomach; in fact, I was just a wereck of my former healthy, happy self. I was so unhappy that many times I prayed to God to allow me to die. Had I known then what I now know I would not have asked and asked amiss.

After reading the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, a very short time I was healed completely of the heart disease, lung trouble, and stomach disorder, and began to feel better generally. Then financial reverses set in, and for four years I passed through such a seeming trial that had it not been for Christian Science, I hardly know what I would have done. In that time I grew to be more patient, to wait upon the Lord, and to let Truth work out my problems. Finally I was healed of an old ailmetn in three weeks' treatment, and that eliminated the last bit of fear and doubt. I am now a happy, well, contented woman. When I think of what I have passed through,—a seeming loss of health, happiness, home, money,—and how wonderful has been the outcome, I see how allpowerful is God. I have gained a more meek and loving spirit and a desire to help others to know this beautiful truth which heals all sickness and sin. A terrible temper was overcome also in these years of study, and there has come a peace that "passeth all understanding."

I am so thankful to God and grateful to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, who has brought me out of darkness into the light of Truth.
