Ten years ago, to human sense, I was a nervous and physical wreck. After months of medical treatment, and an experience in a hospital, I came home no better, but worse. While sitting despondent and alone one day, I said aloud that there must be some thought in this world besides sickness, and the answer came to my consciousness so quickly that I was afraid, because it seemed as though someone had spoken to me. The answer was, Try Christian Science.

Up to this time I had had nothing but criticism for Christian Science. I had never been in a Christian Science church, and did not even know a practitioner by name or sight. We had the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, as a curiosity, and that evening as it was handed to me I said, I will see if there is anything to it. There was instantaneous healing! I slept that night like a little child, and awakened the next morning perfectly free from sickness. All the weakness had fled, and I wanted to walk, to run, to eat. It seemed as though I was as light as air, I was so happy. I dressed and went out of doors to call on my people, and when they came to admit me into the house they acted as though I were a person raised from the dead. To their understanding it was a miracle, but it was divinely natural because I had turned whole-heartedly to God and had laid aside my criticism of Christian Science. I had read up to page 410, lines 29 and 30, of the textbook when this wonderful healing came to me. Since this time my two children and I have made a continuous study of Christian Science, always finding help for our every need. We have had many a testing time to prove our faith in God, but have never wavered, although many times the struggle has seemed severe; and we have always come out victorious.

I have been healed of neuritis and abscess of the ears, and my boy of tuberculosis. These healings were brought about by our absolute reliance on Christian Science treatment.—(Mrs.)Anna Grace Naquin, San Diego, California.
