Through these lines I hope to help others, that they may overcome discouragement, even though life may appear useless and comfortless to them. Ten years ago, through a Christian Science practitioner, I first became acquainted with the omnipotence and omnipresence of God and the unreality of evil. In my great extremity, while lying in bed helpless, suffering from heart and lung trouble, I became acquainted with Mrs. Eddy's teachings and was healed with only a few treatments from a practitioner.

My trouble was so far advanced that I could not expect help from doctors. How wonderfully did divine Love work then! One trouble after another vanished, and material needs were met. My husband filled a very uncertain, poorly paid position as engineer, and all efforts to obtain something more desirable were in vain, but through reading the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and Der Herold, we gained an understanding of the complete provision made by our Father-Mother God, and soon he was given a most desirable position, one such as we had never dreamed of. And so our life became an unbroken chain of proofs of the infinite love and goodness of God.

Divine wisdom enabled us to solve seemingly most difficult problems easily. When at times an error did not seem to be easily overcome, a practitioner helped us, and very soon all was again sunshine and security in God.
