With a heart full of gratitude for my restoration to health and to my family, I wish to offer my experience, with a hope that it may help some other needy one to come to Christian Science for help.

I was raised by strict parents in a Protestant church, and taught to pray to God every day; but it all proved of no avail in my sickness. For months I doctored for what the doctor called a floating kidney, appendicitis, and tonsillitis; and grew worse every day. At last, preparation was made for an operation. I was so weak and fearful that none of my family thought I could ever live through it; but we were pressed not to delay another day, for the doctor said I had a chance to recover with it, and none without it. At the last hour my husband begged the family to consult a Christian Science practitioner first and see what hope he could offer. We did; and he assured us there was nothing impossible with God, if we would wholly rely upon Him. We engaged the practitioner's help, and returned home. I had been eating and sleeping very little for weeks. That night I ate a hearty supper with relish, and slept better than I had done for months. I arose in the morning with the rest of the family, for the pain was almost all gone. At the end of one week's treatment I was entirely healed.
