For some time I have desired to send my testimony of gratitude for all that Christian Science had done for me and mine in the past seven years. I had been working away from my family, and an overwhelming sense of homesickness made my life miserable. The lady with whom I roomed, a student of Christian Science, seeing my need asked me to attend a Wednesday evening testimony meeting. It seemed to me I never knew such a sense of peace as I experienced at that meeting, and the lonesomeness left me. I felt so uplifted that I asked my friend to lend me a copy of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. This was the turning point in my life.

Since then my family has been reunited. Many kinds of so-called children's diseases have been healed—whooping cough, measles, and numerous other ills, including influenza, pneumonia, sore throat, and toothache. After wearing glasses for seventeen years, specialists in three different states having said that I would never be able to do without them, and that they would have to be changed at intervals, I was healed through the study of the textbook and the Lesson-Sermons, together with Mrs. Eddy's other books and the Christian Science periodical literature. That was six years ago, and I have never needed them since.

We have five children attending the Christian Science Sunday School. Two children were born with practically painless childbirth, with the help of a loving practitioner. We have proved repeatedly that "divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need," as our Leader says on page 494 of Science and Health.
