Over sixteen years ago Christian Science came to me when I was struggling with many physical problems. Mentally I was in a state of confusion. Fortunately there was a copy the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, in our home, and I started to read it. Soon afterwards I attended a Christian Science church service. Then I realized that I had found a practical and demonstrable Science, a religion that could give me spiritual understanding of God and man. Since then the Christ, Truth, has been my only physician and medicine.

When I became obedient and receptive to this truth, I found that "the effect of this Science is to stir the human mind to change of base, on which it may yield to the harmony of the divine Mind" (Science and Health, p. 162). I then discovered that headaches and stomach trouble had disappeared. What freedom to be able to eat the food that was set before me! In Matthew we read, "Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink." I have also been healed of heart trouble.

I am grateful to the practitioners and friends who have helped me. Their guidance and inspiration have always given me confidence and courage.
