It is five years since I took up the study of Christian Science, not for physical healing. but through the recommendation of a friend. After studying "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy for a few months I caught the first gleam of truth, which made me very happy. I had read the Bible since childhood, but did not comprehend the spiritual meaning of it. I watched the progress of the wonderful healings of two friends which proved to me that the teachings of Christ Jesus were not lost and that what I read in Science and Health could really be demonstrated, which seemed the greatest wonder of all, as I did not know anything of the great works of Christian Science.

After studying for some time I was seized with a severe attack of heart trouble, from which I had suffered for some years, and I had been told by a physician that it could not be cured. The attack was so severe that I could not move or make any sound, and my body seemed to get stiff. After overcoming the great fear which came over me I repeated the "scientific statement of being" (Science and Health, p. 468) and after what seemed a long time I was able to move again. I went to the telephone and called for the help of a practitioner. On returning to bed I slept the rest of the night, and after six treatments I was entirely cured of the condition which I had been told was incurable. I thank God for this and many other healings, both for myself and my son, who has the privilege of attending the Christian Science Sunday school, which is a great blessing. I am also grateful for the harmony in my home life, and for the many proofs I have had that God is the source of supply, for many of my needs have been met through complete reliance on Him.

I thank God for Christian Science, and I am grateful to Mary Baker Eddy, our revered Leader, whose life work is blessing humanity. I am also grateful for the loving help of a practitioner.
