In the Bible we read, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." "Freely ye have received, freely give." I have received so much help through the study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy that I want to share my blessings with others. It is about sixteen years since I first learned of Christian Science, and although my husband was healed of sciatic rheumatism I paid very little attention, but seven years later became suddenly ill with gallstones and was taken to a hospital in Florida. The doctor said I could never get well unless I submitted to an operation. Neither my husband nor I would consent to it so I was sent home. A neighbor lent me a copy of Science and Health. I read it, but although I could not understand much I was finally healed. Later I was able to lay aside glasses, and during the five years since then I have not had to resort to them again, although I use my eyes constantly.

I have had many beautiful demonstrations with our children in overcoming tonsillitis, toothache, sore eyes, influenza, cough, colds, headaches, and many, many times I have been able even with my little understanding of the truth that makes free to disperse the seeming black clouds of error. I shall be satisfied when I get a perfect understanding of the Christ-science as taught and demonstrated by Jesus on the shores of Galilee over nineteen centuries ago, and revived and given to the world in the present century by our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, through Science and Health. The study of the Bible, together with Science and Health, enables one to get the spiritual understanding of the Bible, a blessing which surpasses all that is material.
