I wish to express my gratitude for Christian Science, and for all that it has done for me, and for the fact that my mother was led to attend the Christian Science church while I was still a little girl, thus enabling me to have about nine years in the Christian Science Sunday School. In those nine years and the few since then I have been so beautifully protected that no serious cases of illness have come to me to be destroyed. The few minor ailments that at times I have manifested have been quickly and effectively overcome through the help of a practitioner. All treatments which I have had from a practitioner have been absent ones, and it has never been necessary to call a second time after work was done.

I am so grateful that due to the fact that I was practically reared in Christian Science, I have grown up in ignorance of medicine and medical terms; therefore, even though various physical ailments are mentioned in my presence, in most cases I have no knowledge of what the manifestations of these so-called diseases seem to be, and there are no disturbing mental pictures to be put out of my thoughts. I always thank God for the wonderful truth and deny that there are any material beliefs of sickness and sin which can hold any of God's children in bondage.

Christian Science has met all my needs. When I finished high school and was wondering what sort of work I should like to take up, I was divinely guided to go to a place of which I had never before thought. There were many applicants ahead of me, but I was accepted, along with three others, to enter an experimental training class which was being held. Later I received a permanent position and was there for over four years. The work was pleasant and the contact with coworkers was always harmonious. It was indeed a demonstration of Truth's guidance.
