It is with profound gratitude that I testify to the guiding, protecting, and healing influence which Christian Science has been in my life.

I was reared in a strictly religious home and loved the church and all of its activities, but I was never strong, and after being an invalid for fifteen years with tuberculosis, I began to question the power and love of God. The doctors gave me no hope of recovering, and I felt absolutely forsaken, when a copy of the Christian Science Sentinel was given me. I read every word in it and felt so much stronger that I told the friend who gave it to me; she told me to send to the public library and borrow the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, which I did. After reading the textbook, I was healed. Within three months I had secured a position in an office. I also came home and prepared the meals and kept house for myself and two sons in complete harmony.

After three years I had to resign my position, as the trouble returned, and all my friends advised me to return to the sanatorium; but I just could not see how I could be loyal to my church and enter a sanatorium. I went to a Christian Science practitioner, whose loving-kindness, patience, and compassion will always be a great lesson to me. He gave me a treatment and told me he would like to hear from me. I left his office and went to see a friend, who helped me find a position, and I went right to work and was very grateful and happy. Several weeks later I realized that man, being the image of God, could reflect only perfection, and consequently never had tuberculosis, and that through the treatment I had received the question of the sanatorium had been completely forgotten. This revelation was so wonderful to me that I have never ceased being grateful.
