I feel that I should add my testimony to the thousands...

I feel that I should add my testimony to the thousands from grateful people who have been healed and regenerated in Christian Science. Some years ago I was suffering from an attack of nervous prostration and valvular heart trouble in such a dangerous form that four insurance companies would not risk a five hundred dollar policy on my life. The doctors had been telling me for years that I would no doubt pass on very suddenly. I was discouraged, nervous, and disheartened, when a "still small voice" said: Try Christian Science. I knew nothing of it and knew no Christian Scientists; but one day I walked to the church nearest my home and, it being a week-day, found the doors locked. Rather hopelessly I went around knocking on all the doors, until finally one was opened and I was lovingly invited in to look at the church, was told where to procure the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, and asked to attend the church services. I immediately procured the textbook and found a very little used Bible in our home, threw out all my medicines, including the favorite remedies of my family (much to their dismay); then I said: I shall give this Science a fair trial; materia medica has not helped me. In a week I was healed. I slept like a child, had no more hemorrhages from the heart trouble, and forgot that I was a victim of nervous prostration.

My husband was healed of a serious chronic condition through reading the textbook and trusting to God's supreme love. My eldest daughter had a sudden attack of blindness, and in ten weeks her sight was restored. We have continued to have remarkable healings; and our gratitude is boundless to God, our loving Father-Mother, to Christ Jesus our Wayshower, and to Mary Baker Eddy for her purity of thought and consecrated love that has brought once more this healing truth to mankind.
