The value of Christian Science has been proved to me...

The value of Christian Science has been proved to me so many times that I desire to acknowledge my appreciation of it, with the hope that others may be encouraged to study and that they also may be helped by it. I became interested in Christian Science about seven years ago. I had a bronchial trouble, colds, headaches, indigestion, and suffered from repeated attacks of lumbago. The last attack I had was several years ago. At that time, after suffering for two weeks I went to a Christian Science practitioner, who gave me one treatment; the next morning I was well and have never had lumbago since. For years I had had severe headaches. The first time I went to a practitioner with an aching head it was cured within fifteen minutes. The last time I had a bad headache I seemed too ill to help myself, and sent for a Christian Science friend. I repeated the twentythird psalm over and over again and in half an hour or so, before the friend could reach me, I was almost wholly free. She gave me a treatment, however, and I have never had a bad headache since.

It is years since I have taken a dose of medicine. My general health has steadily improved. I am grateful for the beautiful truth which Mrs. Eddy has given to us, for the kindness shown me by practitioners and friends who are Christian Scientists, for church services and the literature. I am greatly comforted by the thought that divine Love governs, and I have been healed of many fears from which I formerly suffered, and, to a great extent, of what was once a continual sense of weariness.—(Mrs.) Lillie T. Stutler, Washington, District of Columbia.

In gratitude for the many blessings that have come to me and to my home through the application of the teachings of Christian Science I give this testimony, that those who are struggling along in the dark, as I was, may see the light of Truth as I am trying to see it more clearly each day. Many discordant conditions have been healed, and many times has relief come in a very short time in some sudden distress. Last spring I was healed of a severe attach of influenza in four days, through absent treatment. The same disease tried to attack my little girl but was very quickly overcome. The latter part of the year this child, with several others, was sent home from school with the firm command to stay at home, as they were said to have diphtheria. I was told over the telephone that I would have to stay in quarantine with her. I called up a practitioner, who told me to do as I was instructed, and that God would take care of us. In three and a half days we walked out free and the signs were taken down, much to the surprise of the tenants of the apartment building in which we lived, especially as one family had been kept in quarantine for four weeks for the same reason.
