I cannot say how grateful I am for the teachings of Christian Science

I cannot say how grateful I am for the teachings of Christian Science. At the time it was brought to my attention I was thoroughly disheartened, had no interest in life, was full of hatred and self-pity, and was in great need of healing. Finding that Christian Science was a religion, I thought at first that it was of no use to me, because I had been brought up to study the Bible and to attend church regularly, and when in need of help I could find nothing there to satisfy me and lift me out of this mesmerism of unhappiness. Later I began to study the Christian Science textbook, and soon found all the help I needed. I became utterly changed, losing many faults of character and beginning to love instead of hate. The understanding that God is Love, Mind, Life, has brought great joy into my life; also the knowledge that error is nothing, that there is no power but of God, who is omnipotent, supreme, and therefore that man must lose all fear of lack, discord, loneliness, and manifest only harmony.

Physically I have been healed of constipation of many years' standing, poisoning from insects, a nervous breakdown, and influenza; but it is for the moral healings that I am most grateful. I am so happy to love instead of hate, to know despite all seeming that "Love inspires, illumines, designates, and leads the way" (Science and Health, p. 454).
