After suffering eight years from spinal trouble which seemed to affect every part of my body, I became discouraged and threw away all my medicines, which were many, saying that if I ever should get well it would be because God had healed me, for I would take no more medicine to prolong this miserable existence. Two years later a friend asked me why I did not try Christian Science, and not knowing that it was a religion, I decided to do so and sent for a practitioner.

A part of the Lesson-Sermon was read to me daily until I was able to read myself; but being a member of an orthodox church, I could not seem to accept its teaching. Many a time I was at the point of giving it up, when I would think it would not be just to Christian Science if I did not give it a fair trial, since I had tried materia medica so many years. One morning while I was pondering over the subject, something seemed to say that I must accept Christian Science as it is if I wanted to be healed. I thought for a long time and finally decided to do this and trust God that if it was not right He would reveal it to me and I would drop it instantly, as I would rather suffer all my life than accept a false doctrine. From that moment my condition began to improve. My recovery was very slow, but this made me a more earnest student of the truth, and the healing is complete. I am now enjoying better health than ever before.

I have had the privilege of class instruction, which has proved to be a great help to me. Far greater than all the physical blessings is the peace of mind which comes from the faithful study and practice of Christian Science. Words are inadequate to express my thankfulness to God and my gratitude to Mrs. Eddy for Christian Science, for its reading rooms, and for all the authorized literature. The spiritual unfoldment of Truth far surpasses all physical and material blessings.—(Miss) Ella Mae Storms, Owosso, Mich.
