That God is a very present help in time of trouble I can truly affirm. In the Bible we read Paul's words, "Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you." God, whom I "ignorantly" worshiped, was declared unto me by Christian Science over twelve years ago. I did not then readily grasp the deep truths this wonderful religion revealed, but the seed had been sown, and about a year later I began to study sincerely our two textbooks, the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and to apply the little understanding I gained each day.

In our home we have had many proofs of the omnipresence and omnipotence of God, divine Mind. With the help of a practitioner, one child was healed of smallpox in a week's time. Another child was healed of a dislocated kneecap through his own work, and was able to take part in a strenuous sports exhibition on the third day thereafter.

My husband had a beautiful healing of a large and painful boil on his right wrist. This healing took place in ten days from the time the boil first appeared and did not hinder him in writing or driving, his work requiring both. He relied on God alone. The healing that followed was very impressive, no material aids being used.
