I send this testimony to the Sentinel to express my gratitude, and to help some one who is seeking the truth as I was. While reading in one of the periodicals an article, "Count Your Blessings," I thought how grateful we ought to be that we know a little of Christian Science. As I pause and count my blessings I know it would take many pages to recount them all, for we have had many in our family during the last eight years. The first healing was that of my sister, who had had a nervous breakdown and St. Vitus's dance for over a year, and was helpless when a practitioner called the first time; on the second visit my sister was up, doing some embroidering. She was in the hospital and the doctors and nurses could not understand her case, it seemed so remarkable to them. One week she was a complete wreck, helpless as a baby, the next week she was up and doing fancywork. We said nothing, but just took her home from the hospital, and thanked God, for we knew it was God who had healed her. Her healing has been permanent.

My mother has been healed of burns, scalds, coughs, colds, sprained ankle, a smashed finger, and many other things. She has also been able, just through reading the Christian Science periodicals, to lay aside glasses which she had worn for over fifteen years. She is now able to do all the work about the house and yard. I was healed of severe sore throat which I seemed to have every little while, summer and winter. Three years ago I had a very severe attack and I asked for help from a practitioner, which was very lovingly given. In three days I was completely healed and have not had a sore throat since. Last summer I was spending a few days with friends out of town, and was saved from drowning when caught in an undertow while swimming. My mother, who was at home, did not know I was in danger, but felt the need for doing protective work, through which I was saved, although she did not know she was working for me.
