For several years before turning to Christian Science for help I had been groping for some way out of the sorrow and illness that seemed to be engulfing my life. But it was not until I was led to seek help from a loving Christian Science practitioner that my prayer was answered.

My husband had been ill for more than a year; and after a futile search for health through the aid of several physicians, visits to health resorts, and foreign travel, he was in a critical condition. As a last resort, and with much doubt and many misgivings, because we had never known anything of its healing work, we turned to Christian Science. The healing was so quick that it seemed miraculous; but it was permanent, and we gladly gave up all our old medical and religious beliefs and turned to the study of this wonderful truth that makes us free. During this period, through fear and the constant thinking of sick thoughts, I found myself suffering from chronic diseases. These vanished, however, as I obeyed Mrs. Eddy's injunction in "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 210), "Beloved Christian Scientists, keep your minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them."

Since that time I have had many healings, including uraemic poisoning, tonsillitis, qunisy sore throat, and colds; also innumerable proofs of the protecting power of Christian Science. But the healing of disease, while marvelous, is small in comparison to the joy that comes to us through hourly knowing that whatever the seeming problem may be, as Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 454), "Love inspires, illumines, designates, and leads the way."
