It is with the deepest sense of love to God and gratitude to our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, that this testimony is written. In May, 1916, I had a wonderful proof of the power of Christian Science to destroy fear and pain. It was necessary to have five teeth and four roots extracted for future dental work. I called at the dentist's office to make arrangements for extractions. He said, "You had better go to a specialist and take gas, as these teeth will come out very hard." I replied, "I want you to extract them and I will call for absent treatment by a practitioner. I know divine Love is ever present, and no harm can come to me." I thought he was a little fearful for me on account of my age; however, all was in readiness in a little while and it was certainly a most wonderful demonstration of divine Love's ever presence—no fear, no pain, no nervousness. Oh, how I thank God for the Christ, Truth, that makes us free; and we can all enjoy this freedom if we really trust our Father-Mother God, and seek at all times that Mind which was in Christ Jesus.

In many other ways have I proved the truth of Christian Science. I want to add my appreciation for all of Mrs. Eddy's writings, also for all the literature, which is so spiritual, helpful, and refreshing. I have also "The Life of Mary Baker Eddy" by Sibyl Wilbur, which when read makes us appreciate Mrs. Eddy all the more. I am also happy to state that I am a member of The Mother Church. I am grateful to the many friends who have so lovingly helped me in the journey from materiality to spirituality.
