As a family, we had lived for many years in bondage...

As a family, we had lived for many years in bondage to sickness and fear. For fifteen years I suffered from extreme nervousness and continuous severe headache. Following the advice of doctors, I tried different climates, took drugs, and carried out the physicians' instructions; but found myself growing steadily worse. Through what I now realize was divine guidance, I was led to Christian Science. I asked help from a practitioner, and was given treatment. She told me of the allness and loving-kindness of God; and I was so encouraged with the expectation of being healed, that I took up a systematic study of Christian Science. This earnest seeking brought to me not only healing but a higher standard of living and thinking, a more kindly attitude toward all mankind, together with a desire to enlist as a worker in Christian Science.

I am very grateful for class instruction. I have become a better woman in every way through Christian Science. Whereas before, I had no God, no religion, no hope, no health, now I am glad that, cooperating with God, good, I can be of some help in the betterment of all humanity. Experience has taught me that I can do nothing of myself; that it is God, Mind, who doeth the works. This truth is teaching me to let God govern and to be grateful.
