I am very grateful for fifteen years' experience in Christian Science, during which time my family has known no other physician, no other support. When earnestly and sincerely applied as taught in our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, this Science has never failed us. Our three children were born under Christian Science treatment and have never known any other source of help.

Members of the family have received healings of colds, hay fever, asthma, burns, sprained ankles, broken bones, and the need of wearing glasses; and on numerous occasions we have received direct guidance in our daily living. Particularly am I grateful for a recent demonstration of place and supply. After losing my position and all my possessions, I spent much time searching through material channels for employment and supply. During this period many ventures were tried, all of which ended in either indebtedness or an exceedingly tangled and embittered sense of human relationships. In the darkest moment a Christian Science practitioner said: "Translate all these things into thoughts, as our Leader instructs us to do. Discard the human beliefs and cling to the spiritual facts." This started a clearing up of an obscured sense of activity, position, and supply. I ceased all material efforts, put out of thought all claims of human necessities, and spent the time studying the Bible, our textbook and other works by Mrs. Eddy, with the aid of concordances, together with a thorough reading of the Journal, Sentinel, and Monitor. Temporary employment soon was forthcoming, which in turn led to permanent employment in a very desirable institution, a place in which I had never before thought of looking for employment. This experience has proved that depression, loss, and lack can be removed from one's experience here and now. I shall ever be grateful for the endless patience and unselfed loving assistance of a practitioner during this experience.

While the physical healings and business demonstrations experienced have been cause for constant gratitude, of far more benefit have been the regeneration of mental habits and thinking, a totally new sense of the Bible, and at least a small understanding of the Love that never fails. I am grateful for the privilege of living at a time when our Leader's writings are available; for membership in The Mother Church and a branch church; for participation in church activities; and for the publications and the lectures, which are constant sources of inspiration.
