It is with gratitude and joy that I testify to the healing power of Christian Science. Until six years ago I had been an invalid for nearly ten years with an organic trouble diagnosed by physicians as colitis. I spent many weeks of each year in sanitariums and hospitals, gaining only temporary relief, and believing all these years that sickness was an act of Providence.

Finally, I was led to take up the study of Christian Science. In about three months I realized somewhat that there was only one creator and one creation, and that both are wholly good. Then I began to see that disease exists only in so-called mortal mind. I studied the Bible Lessons in the Christian Science Quarterly and the ninety-first Psalm daily, finding there the spiritual truths and promises of God's protecting care, which led to complete healing. Since then I have had many other healings: colds have been healed in a few hours as I have realized that "nothing inharmonious can enter being, for Life is God" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 228).

Christian Science has taught me that all error may be overcome by the understanding of this great truth which Mrs. Eddy has given us and by obedience to its divine laws. I am grateful for membership in The Mother Church and a branch church, also for class instruction. My desire is to reflect unselfed love, and to help others see the unreality of sin, disease, and death.
