I want to add my testimony of gratitude for Christian Science

I want to add my testimony of gratitude for Christian Science. When I first tried to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, I could hardly understand it at all and could read only a few lines at a time, but I felt it to be the truth through which Christ Jesus healed. From that time I have hardly been troubled with sore throats and indigestion, from both of which I had suffered greatly all my life, and I am beginning to find now that I can overcome them if they do try to appear real. Science and Health was first given to my mother by her grandson after his beautiful healing of lameness, and soon after this we came to live almost next door to a Christian Scientist.

For over eleven years I suffered during the winter from a very painful form of rheumatism; this was overcome in two days through Christian Science treatment. Formerly I had always had to have three weeks' treatment at a health resort, which made me feel weak and miserable. Treatment in Christian Science made me feel just the reverse. Through the patient, loving help of a Christian Scientist I was able, the year before last, to perform the duties of a nurse day and night single-handed, for nearly a year, besides attending to all the other duties of the home. I had worn glasses for over seven years, but do not now use them for working or reading, although I had been told I should need stronger ones every two years.

Christian Science came to me at a time when I greatly needed it, and I should be very unhappy without it. I am very thankful to God for all good, and my desire is for a better understanding of Truth and to express more gratitude. I am very grateful to Christ Jesus the Way-shower, to our revered Leader, Mrs. Eddy, and for the literature.—(Miss) Alice Harcourt, Windlesham, Surrey, England.
