I have a yearning to express my thanks to God for a healing I had from asthma and nervous breakdown from a weak heart. For a long time I worked mentally as we are taught to in Christian Science, thinking I could overcome the trouble. But since the condition did not yield I thought I had better ask a practitioner to aid me. However, it grew worse all the time. Then one day the thought came to me, Maybe this work is for you to do after all. I wrote the practitioner and told him to discontinue the treatment. After a few days I had a spell so severe that I felt the end was near and I was hardly able to hold to the truth. My sister, who was with me, saw this and declared the truth aloud to me and soon I realized the meaning of the words and felt easier and could breathe again. In a few days the trouble all left me. Our Saviour's statement was then proved to me, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." I can hardly find words to convey my gratitude for this blessing.

I heard of Christian Science over thirty years ago, when my neighbor saw my distress. At that time, five or six doctors had pronounced me incurable. I tried Christian Science and was helped at once. The more I read of the literature, the better I understood it, and now I often wonder how I could do without it. It is indeed the Comforter which Christ Jesus promised us.
