When opening either the Journal or the Sentinel, it is the natural thing for me to turn to the testimonies first. Perhaps this is the result of many months of struggle for help when I would anxiously hunt through the testimonies for the healing of cases similar to mine.

Christian Science was hard for me to understand, and at first any healing that came to me was the result of persistent effort. In giving testimonies, so many would tell of instantaneous healings, and to one who was struggling for health it was always a help to read of some one who had had to put forth an effort. When seeking help for the first time I was threatened with an abnormal growth—of which I was cured through the help of a practitioner and my own desire to know the truth.

Both of my children and I have been helped numerous times. During the influenza epidemic my son and I had what would be called severe attacks, but with the help of Science we were healed within a few days and had none of the after effects which so many suffered from. As a child I was reared according to a denominational religion and it was like finding a "pearl of great price" when the first gleam of Truth came to my consciousness. Now my desire is so to understand Christian Science that I shall constantly express the truth.
