As I hear the testimonies at the Christian Science...

As I hear the testimonies at the Christian Science Wednesday evening meetings, and read those in the Christian Science periodicals, expressing gratitude for the wonderful proofs of the healing power of Christ, I feel it my duty, as well as a privilege, to give through the Sentinel my testimony of healing, and to tell how I became interested in Christian Science.

I was living on a farm, where I had decided to remodel our barn by removing the roof and adding thirty feet to its length. It was while sawing the timber for the barn, in the spring of 1910, that I was forced to stop work. Up to this time I had been under medical treatment nearly all my life, and for two years my principal food consisted of oatmeal three times a day. I was very much discouraged, as I was told by my physician that it would be a long time before I should be able to work again. My sister, who was visiting me at that time, told of the help she had received in Christian Science, and asked me to try it before she returned to her home in Colorado.
