It is with a heart filled with gratitude that I send my testimony for publication. From infancy I was a weak, sickly child. After marriage, my health grew much worse, and indigestion, sick headache, and many minor troubles developed. I was unable to take a drink of water without suffering, and for one year lived on graham mush. I was very nervous and constantly filled with fear lest I should not live to raise my children. About this time Christian Science was presented to me. We were living in the country, fifteen miles from a practitioner or a Christian Science church. After driving this distance to ask a practitioner for help for one of our children, I found his talk so beautiful and restful that I knew at once he had something I did not have.

I asked for treatment for the child, never dreaming that I myself might be healed, as I felt my own case too far advanced. However, I bought the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and immediately began to read it, searching for the Principle that had healed my child. I read almost constantly and prayed that I might know if this teaching were the truth. I read so constantly and was so eager to understand what I read that I forgot to take my medicine, one kind of which I had taken for twelve years. All at once it dawned upon me that I was healed.
