When I first heard of Christian Science I had come to the end of my resources. Physicians had repeatedly told me my trouble was incurable because it was inherited from my mother. I had never, since my earliest childhood, known what it was to be entirely without pain in my head, which resulted in other suffering and much hindrance to my daily duties. At this particular time I had had hay fever for the third time, and during sleepless nights I asked myself if God does indeed send afflictions, as I had been told, to purify His children. The name Christian Science had a restful sound, and I decided to try it although I did not know at all what it was. I sought the help of a practitioner, who assured me that God is the healer of all our diseases. My healing was complete. It is some years since this healing occurred, and I have not had the slightest return of either trouble.

Through the study of Christian Science I have learned to turn to the divine Mind with every problem, whether mental, physical, or financial. For the spiritually uplifted thought gained by knowing God as the only healer, and by realizing His constant care and protection, I owe never ending gratitude to Mrs. Eddy, who says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 206): "Good is my God, and my God is good. Love is my God, and my God is Love."—(Mrs.) Anna Krough, Minneapolis, Minn.
