I was always taught to believe that we ought to be resigned to God's will when sorrow or sickness came to us, but I never could feel that way. Therefore when my sister passed on two months after her marriage, I went to church after church, hoping some one might be able to explain the reason of it all and show me a God of love; but I never succeeded until Christian Science taught me and showed me that God.

Sixteen years ago I had severe throat trouble and nothing gave me relief from the pain of it. A friend suggested I should go to a Christian Science meeting; so out of curiosity I went, and when there heard the testimony of one who had been healed of consumption after he had read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I felt the truth of what the speaker said, and the pain instantaneously disappeared, never to return. Christian Science has never once failed me, and I have never used medicine or material remedies of any kind since I heard of it. I have just relied on God as we are taught in our textbook. Several years ago I used to take weak turns, and sometimes lie unconscious for hours. One evening I asked a practitioner (by telephone) to help me, and one treatment completely healed me. These weak turns have never once since bothered me. Influenza, lumbago, and numerous other ailments have completely disappeared; and rheumatism, which always came to me in damp weather, has also vanished. All this healing has made me deeply grateful, but I think I prize above all the peace and happiness that have come to me through the study of the Bible and Science and Health. I now know that God is indeed Love and that He only sends good to His children. At every turn I have experienced that He is a present help always.

Words can never express all the gratitude I feel to our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, for having discovered this wonderful truth and for having given it to the world.—(Miss) Mary May Macnab, Hillhead, Glasgow, Scotland.
