My debt to Christian Science is growing daily, for it is constantly bringing more and more joy into my life, and is giving to me a peace of mind which I had never previously experienced. This joy is the result of healing, physical, mental, and moral, and is the evidence of what the apostle to the Gentiles termed being transformed by the renewing of the mind. Such an abundance of happiness and contentment has come to me that it is impossible, within the scope of this testimony, to more than touch upon some of the blessings so freely bestowed.

During the years that have elapsed since my serious attention was first called to Christian Science, through the healing of my father, I have witnessed many healings among the members of my family, and have experienced not a few myself. These included the overcoming of ptomaine poisoning, rheumatism, bronchitis, grip, fever, and chronic headaches; the effects of several accidents have also been overcome in a remarkably short time. I have been healed of backaches and extreme nervousness that had troubled me almost continuously for many years. A study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, also enabled me to leave off eyeglasses that I had worn for about two years. This was over fifteen years ago and I have never had occasion to use them since. At about the same time I awakened to the fact that through merely reading our textbook I was healed of nasal catarrh, which simply disappeared, although it had been a prolonged case and three operations had failed to afford permanent relief.

During an extended experience in business, both as an employee and as employer, I have found Christian Science an inestimable daily help, and I have been aided by its availability in meeting problems of every character. This practical knowledge of God or divine Principle, and His Christ, or Truth, has enabled me to undertake and successfully accomplish tasks which, without this understanding, would have been regarded by me as impossible of achievement. It would be strange indeed were I not ready, at all times, freely to render grateful acknowledgment for these many benefits.
