I wish to express my gratitude for the good which has come to me since taking up the study of Christian Science. I am particularly grateful for the elimination of fear in a great measure from my thought. This has been such a relief and blessing to me and my family. It seems to me from the time I was a small girl I was always afraid of something. These fears followed me to womanhood, and at last I had what is called a nervous breakdown. My cry went out to God — to know Him, to find Him, was my prayer; and finally, after weeks of suffering, I was led to take up the study of Christian Science.

My healing, according to material sense, was slow, although the first few treatments from a practitioner brought relief and I was able to eat and sleep — two of the blessings I had lost sight of for some time. There were many false beliefs and much wrong thinking to be destroyed, but through earnest study and kindly help from practitioners I was healed.

As I look back over the eleven years I have been studying Christian Science, I can see that each day my thought was changing, until I wonder at the difference. My thought is regenerated, and in a measure I know God and my relationship to Him. There are many healings which have taken place in our home; healings of sore feet, grippe, cuts, broken arm, eczema, "athlete's foot," and colds; and I had an experience of childbirth which was practically without pain. Where before at childbirth I had to resort to an anaesthetic and instruments, neither was used or needed. I was able to be up and around the house in a few days, perfectly normal and free. Harmony is being established in our home and a sense of peace in thinking of my two daughters, knowing that God is All-in-all, the only power and presence, and that He is always with them.
