I should like to express some of the gratitude I feel for what it has done for me, knowing that what it has done for me it can do for others.

However, through the loving guidance of a friend, who read to me and lovingly explained the truth as taught in Christian Science, I turned wholeheartedly to it for healing, and in a very short time the gloom was lifted. I began to know God as the only Life and Love, I was healed of the false sense of grief, and learned to be glad and to rejoice. The following statement by Mrs. Eddy in Science and Health (p. 69) was a great comfort to me and opened my eyes to the truth about God and man: "Spiritually to understand that there is but one creator, God, unfolds all creation, confirms the Scriptures, brings the sweet assurance of no parting, no pain, and of man deathless and perfect and eternal."
