Nearly all my life was spent in wandering, until the light was shown to me through the study of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and I learned that God is the great Physician, who heals all our sickness and sin. I was indeed weary, wondering why God had made me suffer. It did not seem that life was worth the struggle. and many nights were spent in tears, wishing that I might go to sleep, never to awake.

Each year found me more and more in bondage, undergoing one operation after another. The last operation resulted in a complete breakdown, and I was compelled to close my place of business in the middle of the season. The doctor ordered me away, telling me that if I did not give up I could not live. I took his advice; and while I was on this trip a friend lent me Science and Health, which I began to read. When I was halfway through the book I became quite ill. Then I decided that I could no longer depend on material remedies. When I returned to my home I was led to a Christian Science practitioner, who told me about God and His love. Oh, the joy I felt when I found the door open and light peeping dimly through the darkness which had seemed hopeless to me. I did not realize just what she meant when she said, "There is just one Mind, and there is no loss of memory," but in a few days I was able to memorize "the scientific statement of being," found on page 468 of the Christian Science textbook. I was healed. I have also been healed of headaches which I had had since a child; of stomach trouble; of influenza, which was overcome in two days; and instantaneously of bladder trouble of many years' standing. Many other ills also fell away.

I am grateful for the privilege of membership in The Mother Church and a branch church and for class instruction.—(Miss) Jane Singer, Hollywood, California.
