I feel a deep sense of gratitude for the opportunity of telling through the Sentinel of the beautiful healings I have experienced since taking up the study of Christian Science.

My first healing, of extreme nervousness, will always stand out as a beacon light to me. It brought home the much-needed lessons of obedience and honesty, for which I am very grateful. Some copies of the Christian Science Sentinel had been given to me by a friend, and I had promised to read them sometime. One evening, being alone in a strange city, I was overcome by nervousness, and I thought, Why not read the Sentinels as I promised to do? for I felt that there would be no sleep for me all night anyway. I got them out and read for several hours, and then I noticed that I was calm and peaceful; so I retired and slept quietly all night. I was surprised the next morning to find that I had slept so well, and I thought if Christian Science could do that for me I was going to find out more about it. I went to the Christian Science Reading Room that same day, and I shall never forget the peace and calm which I experienced there. It seemed as though the room was just filled with divine Love. From that time, twelve years ago, Christian Science has met my every need.
