It is with deep gratitude for Christian Science that I give my testimony of the power of this great truth that heals and makes men free. I did not come into Christian Science for a physical healing. I had reached the point in my human experience at which I was very much dissatisfied, and was longing and searching for something which I could not find. One day a Sentinel came to my attention, and I noticed the words, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." I did not know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." I did not know the truth, nor from what it would make me free. After I had studied the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, I found that for which I had been seeking, and a great sense of satisfaction, joy, peace, and happiness came with it. But I did not yet see the great benefits to be gained from it. Not until later did I find that the truth had freed me from chronic indigestion, constipation, and throat trouble—all of many years' standing.

Later, through the conscious application of the understanding of divine law and the help of a practitioner, I was healed of broken ribs and a dislocated ankle bone without losing a day's work. With one treatment I was healed of yellow jaundice in its last stages.

Habits of thought such as worry, resentment, stubbornness, self-will, fear, self-pity, and the like gave way. Mrs. Eddy says on page 473 of Science and Health, "Christ is the ideal Truth, that comes to heal sickness and sin through Christian Science, and attributes all power to God." I am profoundly grateful for the understanding of God's law which proves that truth does heal when sincerely and rightly applied. I have been a student of Christian Science for over thirteen years, and it has been my only physician. Through the daily study of our Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly I find constant help. I could not go on without it, for it is my hourly protection while out in the business world and at all times. I am so grateful to our dear Leader for giving to all mankind this blessed truth; also for the privilege of membership in The Mother Church and in a branch church. I hope to prove my gratitude by daily living, and serving the Cause of Christian Science.
