I am glad to testify to the unfailing benefits and spiritual uplift to be gained by any one who will study the rules of healing as set forth in Christian Science. After the birth of my first boy I was left, after three months in bed, a nervous and physical wreck, with disaster predicted for me if I ever had another child. For the next three and one half years I was never entirely well for two days at a time. Five months before my second boy was born, however, Christian Science was recommended to me by my physician. A Christian Science practitioner came to see me and explained something of this wonderful truth, and I awoke to realize that I did not have to spend my life in fear and suffering. I was so elated and joyful as I read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and had treatment for about two weeks, and all my ailments disappeared. Sciatica, bowel trouble, fear of appendicitis, a diseased organ, and other discordant falsities had gone, never to return. After two treatments I laid aside glasses, which had been worn for eight years, and have been able to do fine sewing and use my eyes at any time with perfect ease, where before they had caused me much pain and severe headaches. Gradually all fears of childbirth were completely overcome. The birth was nearly painless.

After the first quick healings and spiritual exaltation we had many dark hours of struggle and disappointment, as well as triumphs; but I know now this was best for us, as the effort would not have been so persistent had all our healings been as quick as the first ones. However, in the nine years following, the truth in Christian Science has never failed to meet all problems of sickness, sorrow, and poverty. My husband and I are grateful for the privilege of class instruction taken together two years ago. My heart is full of love to God for giving us, through Mrs. Eddy, this effectual way of salvation; and I am truly thankful not only for our own healings, but for the whole cause of Christian Science and all it means of surcease from sorrow and suffering and of noble work carried on in all its branches.—(Mrs.) Enid J. Collins, Vancouver, British Columbia.
