"O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him," sang the Psalmist. I feel it is my duty and privilege to testify to the great change in my life brought about by the teaching of Christian Science. It has taught me to know and realize that God is Love and Allpower, and that "in him we live, and move, and have our being." It has brought me out of the bondage of sickness and sin into glorious freedom; for He heals all our diseases, and forgives all our sins. Although an earnest student of the Bible for many years, I never before realized what it meant to be a child of God, good. It seemed a continual striving after some future state of perfection and holiness, and a constant consciousness of one's unworthiness. I had always thought that poverty, sickness,—all ills,—were divinely appointed. In fact, during years of physical suffering I thought it was part of my spiritual training, that I might be made fit for the kingdom of heaven.

Oh, how I thank our Father-Mother God for the friendship of faithful Scientists, who in a time of greatest need led me gently and lovingly to study this great truth. I had never seen any of the literature, or hymns, and at first found it hard to break down the old foundation of scholastic teaching; but now I rejoice to say that Christian Science solves all my problems, and that I rely alone on divine Love to supply all my needs. It took all the bitterness of grief away, and enabled me to look into the future with courage when my husband passed on.

During the short time I have been a student of Christian Science I have had several beautiful demonstrations of healing. One especially, which I should like to mention, took place at a Sunday morning service. I had fallen and apparently severely injured my arm, so that it was useless and I was in great pain. A Scientist friend, not knowing of the accident, called on her way to the service—some twenty-five miles north—to get me to accompany her. I felt it impossible to go, but consented after her assurance that I would be helped. No notice was taken of the injury, but I felt the pain growing less; and on reaching home again I was surprised to find that the pain had gone and I was able to raise my arm straight above my head. This was a great revelation to me.
