About eighteen years ago our little family was sorely and sorrowfully groping through "the darkest hour." We were all suffering from a so-called fatal disease, and had been informed that there was little hope of recovery without an operation for my mother and treatment in a sanatorium for my sister and me. Through the recommendation of a stranger, we took up the study of Christian Science. The textbook was purchased, and all material remedies were immediately destroyed. We began to attend church services, and secured the assistance of a practitioner, who lovingly assisted us with our first steps in our journey from sense to Soul. Our task was not an easy one, for old religious beliefs had to be relinquished and a new prayer learned; fear and pain had to be overcome with confidence and intelligent trust in God's power to heal and the understanding of man's dominion; hate had to give way to love. Thus it was that the kingdom of heaven was established in our lives, and harmony gradually displaced error. And as we found ourselves "hid with Christ in God," we began to experience a calmness that strengthened us, an assurance that confirmed our faith, and an understanding that proved our at-one-ment with God, infinite Life.

During these fruitful years we have experienced many physical healings, and have had constant protection from all untoward circumstances, and continued and sufficient supply to meet our every need.

I am grateful beyond words for all that Christian Science has done for us, for our membership in The Mother Church and in a branch church, and for the great privilege of having class instruction together. I am also grateful to the practitioners who so lovingly gave their services. Last but not least, I express my deep reverence for, and appreciation of, Mary Baker Eddy, who pioneered, suffered, and endured for the salvation of all humanity.
