Christian Science found me when a young girl

Christian Science found me when a young girl. I had never been taught about God, and was totally unacquainted with the Bible. Through my mother's healing in Christian Science of an organic trouble for which she had tried many so-called cures without success, we became interested in this religion. During the succeeding fifteen years the Bible treasures, unlocked with the "key," "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, have become dearer and more practical to me, as beacon lights which illumine our path.

Christian Science has been my husband's and my only physician in rearing a family of six children. Many wonderful healings have been experienced, some of them instantaneous, others more slow; some with a practitioner's loving help, others through our own understanding of this great truth. The ailments healed include a serious case of erysipelas and of constipation; influenza; complicated measles; whooping cough; pneumonia; bladder trouble; bondage to severe colds and headaches; blood poisoning; fever; painful burns, which were healed without leaving any scars; lumbago, and rheumatism. A broken bone was healed in five days, and dentistry made less painful through the application of Christian Science.

This healing, uplifting, comforting truth has been of unspeakable help in childbirth, and also when one very dear to us passed on. I am so grateful that this new-old religion gives us an assurance of God's protecting care in time of accident or epidemic. Christian Science is also helping me to overcome many faults in my disposition, such as selfishness, sarcasm, criticism, thoughtlessness, and quick temper. It is freeing me from bondage to all sorts of fears, and is wonderfully helpful in giving the children a firm moral and spiritual foundation upon which to build. I am grateful for membership in The Mother Church and a branch church, and for all the activities of this great organization so firmly established by our beloved Leader.
