To me Christian Science is the most wonderful thing in the world. My first knowledge of the healing power of Truth came when I turned to Christian Science in physical need, and found immediate relief. It has been my only physician and comforter at all times and under all conditions for the past twelve years. Before that time my life was filled with sorrow and sickness, but since then I have hardly thought of fear or sickness. The physical healing is good, but small when compared with the spiritual understanding of God as revealed to us through Christian Science, and knowing what Jesus meant when he said, "If ye continue in my word ... ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." This truth gives us power to conquer bad habits; it quenches the love of sin; it takes hate out of the heart, and brings joy, gladness, peace, and love.

I desire to give the following testimony of healing in Christian Science that it may be read by others who perhaps are facing something of the same condition. On September 3, 1919, my baby girl was born. A Christian Science practitioner had been called by telephone to give absent treatments, which she continued to give during the week preceding the birth. The baby was born without pain. The first day I remained in bed but sat up a good part of the time. The second day I was up and dressed, the third day and thereafter I took entire care of the baby and was about the house as usual and ate every meal at the table with the family. From the first I felt perfectly well and ate all the food I cared for, with no bad effect. The fifth day I was out on the piazza, the only pleasant day of the week. During the week's treatment several demonstrations were made. The bowels and kidneys were in natural condition, and one demonstration which seemed the greatest was the healing of a deformity of the breasts of about twenty years' standing. No medicine or material means were taken or used at any time. My heart overflows with thankfulness to God and gratitude to our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for all that Christian Science has done for me and mine, and I am grateful for our literature and the Lesson-Sermons and for the privilege of membership in The Mother Church, also that I have had the privilege of helping others. And my greatest desire is so to live that I may be worthy to be called a Christian Scientist.
