I wish to express my deep gratitude for Christian Science...

I wish to express my deep gratitude for Christian Science and all the blessings which it has brought to me. As a child I was brought up to read the Bible; and, although I could not reconcile my reading with my daily life, I clung to the belief that somewhere a God existed who was a Father to His children, although I did not seem able to find Him. As I grew up and left the shelter of my home life, I was brought into contact with many phases of misery, disease, sin, and poverty, so that gradually my trust in an all-loving Father was sapped; and when I drifted into a state of bad health, there seemed to be no help to which I could appeal.

Some time previously, before what was to me an important examination, I had been healed of painful suppurating fingers by reading certain of the Psalms and trusting to the promises therein contained; but latterly I had lost faith even in the Bible and rarely opened it or went to church. At last, when I had found that the kindness of doctors and friends could give me neither health nor sustained happiness, I turned to Christian Science. I can hardly express the joy with which my first reading of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy was attended. I seemed to have "seen a great light." I felt that I was reading what I had always in reality believed, but had never dared to rest on; and I found that the "Key to the Scriptures" indeed opened the Bible to me. Since then, over six years ago, I have had many proofs of the healing power of Christian Science. I have been helped by it to overcome bad nervous attacks, influenza, and minor ailments. Defective eyes have been strengthened and my whole state of health has improved.
