Before I knew about Christian Science I believed that our well-being depended upon our obedience to what we call physical laws. Christian Science has taught me that there is only one law governing man and the universe, and this the law of God. This law is based on the will and purpose of God, which are logically in accord with His nature, love, therefore the law of God is wholly good and accomplishes that which He pleases. On many occasions my being was far from satisfactory even to human sense, but through Christian Science treatment and my own understanding harmony was restored.

My very first proof of the operation of God's law was the correction of the belief that I was without friends. I learned that all who are striving to do God's will are of the household of God. Realizing this, I no longer felt lonely. When I thought that I could not communicate and converse with the people around me on account of speaking a different language, the law of God revealed to me that all are ideas of the one Mind and forever included in that one Mind and working to the same end; I learned that it was impossible for me not to understand the language of Love. The Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, from which I learned English, was my only and impersonal instructor.

The law of God has guided me to the fountain of living waters. When I was filled with countless beliefs of physical ills and mental depression, it was the law of God which annulled one after another and gave me a weapon—the truth—with which to defend myself against the false accuser of man. When I believed that I had lost all my hair, the law of God revealed to me that perfection and completeness are ever present, and Mrs. Eddy's words were proved true, that "God is more to a man than his belief, and the less we acknowledge matter or its laws, the more immortality we possess" (Science and Health, p. 425). My hair was restored. I have been healed of colds, nervousness, fear, heart trouble, constipation of lifelong standing, and gas poisoning.
