For the inspiration and protection received through the study of Christian Science during a time of countless difficulties, I should like to express my gratitude to God and to our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy.

Christian Science came into our home during the World War. I was at the time in great need of healing, both physical and mental. The profound joy and revelation which unfolded to me as I read the chapter on Prayer in the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, have been a source of great peace ever since.

For three years many healings were experienced. Hands which had been crushed in a washing machine were restored to their normal state; and tuberculosis, colds, headaches, ivy poisoning, impetigo, mastoiditis, and many other difficulties were healed. Some of these healings came through my own understanding of Truth, gained from reading our textbook, and others through the aid of a Christian Science practitioner. During this time I felt that I was living on the mountaintop, but the time came when I went down into the valley and had to prove all that I had been learning of Christian Science, for thus do we purify our desires in our journey from sense to Soul.
