So many times have I found renewed courage and strength in reading the testimonies of healing in the Christian Science periodicals, that I am glad to avail myself of this opportunity for expressing gratitude with the hope that I may in this way help others.

As I look back now, I can readily see that I never truly lived until I found Christian Science, and yet for the first year or two after I took up the study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy I often became discouraged over the slow progress I was making. As I continued to "strive to enter in" the way became clearer. My biggest problem seemed to be one of supply, but as soon as I realized that I had been clinging to dependence on human personality and had feared to place radical reliance on God, I was enabled to find a place for myself in the business world and to prove that God has work for every one of His children to do. Through the aid of Science I have been able to demonstrate, in some measure, the fatherhood and motherhood of God in providing a home and caring for my small children. Ills common to children as well as minor accidents have been quickly met in our family, sometimes by singing together our inspiring hymns or by repeating the "scientific statement of being" (Science and Health, p. 468). The hymns particularly seem to have aided the children to grasp the Principle of Christian Science. Not long ago my seven-year-old daughter told me that a bee had stung her on the hand while she was playing in the school yard. She told me that she had declared that God is Love and that He would not let anything hurt her, and that this had instantly proved to be true.
