With a heart full of gratitude to God I give my testimony, hoping thereby to help some one else. Through the teachings of Christian Science I have gained a better understanding of God and man. I have proved again and again God's promise as found in Isaiah, "When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee." Every seeming error is but another opportunity to prove God's allness. Instead of being filled with fear and dread I now have peace and joy in realizing the saving power of the one Mind, God.

About twelve years ago I went to a practitioner and asked for help and within two weeks the discord was overcome, but I did not then think of studying Science and Health and not until 1911 did I get a Quarterly and study the Bible lessons. Two years ago I had an attack of paralysis. The doctors were called, as the rest of the family did not understand Christian Science, but they gave me no hope, so my husband called a practitioner. I had lost the power of speech and my side was entirely helpless, but with faithful perseverance and encouragement from the practitioner I began to improve, but very slowly. Sometimes it was dark and cloudy but at last the clouds disappeared and now I am using my hand in writing.
