I wish to express my gratitude to Christian Science for its healing efficacy in regard to my problems. Every chastening of thought has brought me nearer to God, and made my life more livable and joyful.

Problems attendant upon my marriage were recently healed. Although my fiancee was not a Christian Scientist, she was rapidly becoming interested. But people seemed to conspire to separate us. We were presented with the arguments that we were too young, had insufficient supply, were incompatible, and many other aggressive suggestions. For a time these held sway over us, and we parted company. This made us turn from human direction to divine Science for consolation and for the right solution to the problem. We were led together again as soon as we were free from the influence of others, and, with the help of a practitioner, we came to the realization of the true sense of home. There came, also, an ever-growing conviction to each of us of our right to be married, and a humble prayer for God's will to be done.

About this time I was transferred by my employers to a distant city, and, through seeming lack of supply, was not able to get married. This was another testing time for my fiancee and me, for which we are now grateful, since our separation caused us to turn more earnestly to Christian Science. Within a few months, the way was opened for us to be married. Beliefs of interference and lack of supply have melted away. We have since been daily grateful for learning more of the true man and the true woman, created in the image and likeness of God, and rejoice in the step we have taken which has yielded so much happiness and spiritual progress.
