When in the very depths of the "Slough of Despond,"...

When in the very depths of the "Slough of Despond," caused by ill health, I learned of Christian Science through a friend, who had but a short time before been led to this truth. After reading some copies of the Christian Science Sentinel which she gave me, I felt comforted; and I have since realized that right then I began to think differently. Finally, I decided to seek help of a practitioner. A visit to the practitioner led me to attend the church services; and while reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy I was able to lay aside glasses which I had worn for several years. This healing, as well as other physical improvement, greatly impressed me. I remember saying to another member of the family, "The way is pointed out to me, and I am going to follow it." I shall always be grateful for this resolve.

At the time when our only son passed on we were upheld and comforted beyond human comprehension. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel toward our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for Science and Health, which has helped me to gain some understanding of the Bible and of divine truth. I have been healed of lung trouble and extreme fear of what it might develop into; of hay fever, a chronic throat trouble, sick headaches, influenza, colds, sprained ankle, a very painful sinus trouble, chapped hands, burns, bruises, as well as other inharmonious conditions. For one healing I am especially grateful. Twelve years ago I was operated upon for a trouble which two physicians said would require another operation; but through the overcoming of different phases of wrong thinking I have become a healthy, happy woman, instead of a sickly morbid one. Our daughter was healed of a very severe attack of quinsy. This seemed rather slow in yielding, but through the experience we learned to be more patient.
