I wish to express my gratitude for a knowledge of Christian Science, and for all it has done for us in our home. At a time of great mental and physical darkness, this clearer understanding of our Father-Mother God came as a glimpse of heaven. Since that time no material remedies of any kind have been used in our little family, and influenza and whooping cough have been overcome in a few hours. The birth of our little daughter was experienced under very harmonious conditions. Through the help of a practitioner, over two thousand miles distant, the months previous were free from all pain and discord. Although I was alone when the little one was born, no ill effects were felt and recovery was rapid. This was a wonderful experience and brought to me more clearly than ever before the omnipresence of divine Love. A few days before, our eldest child was kicked in the face by a horse. When I went to her, upon hearing her screams, nothing of her face could be seen for blood, but the one thought uppermost was, that one expression of Life could not possibly harm another. The child stopped crying. I bathed her face, and together we talked of God and the unreality of anything unlike Him. In less than a week her face was completely healed, not even a scar remaining.

For all these blessings and many others we are indeed thankful. Through the daily study of the Lesson-Sermons and the Christian Science literature, my husband and I are learning to overcome each difficulty as it presents itself, looking upon these experiences as testing times. I am grateful to the kind practitioner and loving friends who have so often helped me over a bit of rough road, and grateful also to our Leader, who did so much to enable us rightly to understand the teachings of Jesus. Above all, I am humbly thankful to the Giver of all good, and my greatest desire is so to live that I may be worthy of the name Christian Scientist.
