A deep desire to give to the world something of the wonderful sense of joy and satisfaction and protection that the teachings of Christian Science have brought into my life impels me to write the following testimony as an expression of heartfelt gratitude for one of many healings which I have experienced since taking up the study of Christian Science twenty-two years ago.

While I was on a camping holiday with my husband and children a few years ago, we went for a climbing expedition one day up some mountains at the back of our camp. We had reached our objective, having been over the most difficult part of the climb, and were resting on a narrow path preparatory to descending again. I was standing up and leaning against a small sapling which suddenly gave way, causing me to fall backwards down the side of the mountain. I turned somersaults three times, and was only brought to a standstill by landing with great force on the lower part of my back on a rough tree stump. For a few moments I could not think, the pain seemed so great, and all sorts of suggestions came crowding into my mind—that I was injured for life and would never be able to walk again, and so forth. These I endeavored to refute with the true statements that man is unfallen and uninjured; also I tried to realize the truth of Mrs. Eddy's words on page 427 of our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," where she says, "Man is the same after as before a bone is broken or the body guillotined."
