My family had passed and were passing through many deep waters. Loss of health, happiness, money, and an overwhelming sense of self-depreciation, helped to comprise the load which they were bravely but seemingly in vain struggling against. The joy, happiness, and above all else the hope which were revealed to my mother at the first Christian Science service she attended are indescribable in words. With newborn spirit she brought to those at home the message of good tidings; and at last the bow of great promise, God's ever present love and care for His children, broke through the overhanging clouds and revealed to them their rightful place and inheritance in His kingdom.

Being about eight years old at this time, I had the great privilege of attending the Christian Science Sunday School and of being educated as a Christian Scientist. Some might infer that my experience thereafter would be one of perfect harmony and health; but this was not so. Many were the problems to be met and mastered, not always in the way I had planned, but always in the way which best fitted my growth.

About a year and a half ago I experienced a physical healing which proved a great blessing to me. A growth appeared on the sole of my foot. For several weeks I tried to realize the truth about the perfection of God's child, but the condition grew worse instead of better. It was necessary for me to be upon my feet most of the day, and this not only was very painful but also brought with it a sense of irritation that my duties were not being performed so quickly as they might be. I then decided to ask the help of a Christian Science practitioner. Treatment was begun, and in a very short time all sense of pain and inflammation disappeared, and one evening the growth fell out. In a week's time no trace of the condition could be seen.
