I realize that now is the time to express the gratitude that wells up in my heart for the loving help received through Christian Science. I had been under medical treatment for fifteen years and was growing worse every year. When the thought of leaving my young son to the care of others came to me I turned to God in prayer as I had never done before. I asked the question, "Why can I not be healed in the way Jesus healed?" I pondered this question, with the mental picture of the woman who pressed Jesus in the crowd and touched the hem of his garment, until that one desire was ever with me and was, in itself, a constant prayer.

I grew better through this desire, and it was while away from home that I was guided to a piece of literature, the Christian Science Sentinel, in which I found the answer to my prayer. I studied and absorbed the truth found there and finally sent for "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and when I read its loving, healing message I lost all sense of discord and pain, and found joy and peace in their stead. Not quite satisfied that I had done all, I talked with a practitioner, and after one week's treatment I was healed completely. My experience at the time of the healing has been to me the most sacred moment of my life It came in the quiet of night, like a still, small voice, in the words, "Be still, and know that I am God." I listened, followed, and arose in some measure out of material beliefs and was so uplifted that I caught a glimpse of "a new heaven and a new earth" described by John in Revelation.

Neighbors and friends marveled at the great change, but for months I kept my counsel, and at last I was able to tell them it was Truth's healing power. I sought the church services, and since then have been able to bring help to others.
