I have long wanted to give this testimony to express the debt of gratitude I owe to Christian Science for the manifold blessings which have come to me through its beautiful teachings. Through the understanding of Truth's omnipotent power and the comprehension that there is only one Mind, God, I have had many beautiful healings. I had suffered for many years from chronic costiveness, from which medical remedies had failed to free me.

I had had four operations and suffered from intestinal adhesions. The physician told me that there was no certainty of my ever being freed from them. Following an operation for gallstones, more adhesions formed, and the physician stated that it would be necessary to operate again. After my four previous experiences, I felt quite quite discouraged.

Friends who were Christian Scientists occasionally gave me Science literature to read. Finally I awakened to the fact that I, too, could be healed. I then began to read the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly, and to attend church meetings regularly, and also Christian Science lectures. After a while I wrote to a practitioner for help, and in three days I was healed of the costiveness. When I took up the study of Christian Science there were so many things to overcome that I do not know when the adhensions left. They simply disappeared.
