Although I have only known of Christian Science for a little more than one year, I feel impelled to express my deep gratitude for all that it has done for me. I heard of it in a time of great need, when the wail of Job, "Oh that I knew where I might find him!" had been constantly with me for many months, and I seemed not to be able to find any response. Christian Science has healed me of very severe nervous headaches which I had had for a great many years. It has also healed me of very great night terrors, from which I had suffered for over thirty years and which tendency was considered by a specialist to be inherited and incurable. These attacks left me in a very exhausted condition, with weak heart action.

Christian Science has changed me from a semi-invalid into a healthy woman. Through a sudden realization of the truth of the words, "They shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint," I am now able to walk more than I have ever done in my life and to stand any ordinary or even excessive exertion without fatigue. I am especially grateful for this healing, as I had been told by a London doctor that I must make up my mind that I could never be as strong as other people and must always rest a great deal and avoid getting overtired. There are many other benefits and healings that I have received through Christian Science and for them all I am deeply grateful, also for the loving help I have received along the way. Above everything, I am grateful for Christian Science as a demonstrable religion, and to Mrs. Eddy for teaching me to know God as divine Principle, which has enabled me to find a satisfying response to Job's desire in the words of Paul, which Mrs. Eddy quotes on page 304 of Science and Health, "Neither death, nor life, ... nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God."
