Frequently I have been uplifted and inspired by the testimonies in our periodicals. Therefore, I should seem as ungrateful as the nine lepers who failed to acknowledge the healing power of Truth, were I not publicly to express my boundless gratitude for the many blessings Christian Science has brought to our family.

I first came in contact with this Science more than twenty-five years ago, when visiting in the home of a dear relative, who was living her religion. A few years later, although I had what the world calls health and happiness, I saw my need for spirituality. I can never be grateful enough for seeing at that time that the study of Christian Science would supply my need, for soon thereafter I married, and in due course had a little family of three. As soon as the children could talk and walk they were enrolled in the Christian Science Sunday School, and now, grown to young manhood and womanhood, they continue to apply their understanding of Truth with fine results.

We have proved that the understanding of Christian Science acts as both a preventive and a curative. On many automobile trips, we have been protected when unexpected conditions arose which threatened harm. When my son was quite young, he was healed of a tendency to frequent colds. This healing came when my resentment at the difficulty was replaced with the joyous realization that man's "birthrightis dominion, not subjection," as Mrs. Eddy tells us on page 518 of Science and Health.
