It is with a grateful heart that I wish to give my testimony of the loving ministrations of Christian Science. It is now more than twenty-five years since this Science was presented to me, in a time of mental and physical stress, and I gratefully accepted it, for I felt that only God could meet my need.

Though I had been reared by Christian parents, and had been an active member of an orthodox church since childhood, I had always felt that there was a higher standard of Christian attainment than I was able to reach. As the practitioner, to whose office I had been taken, patiently and lovingly explained Christian Science to me, I recognized it to be the truth. And, as I applied the rules I learned, I was lifted above the fears and dread that had overshadowed me. I could say, in the words of Paul, "Old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." I had many instantaneous healings, both for myself and others, and it was all very wonderful. I am very grateful for the loving help of practitioners and friends during the early years of my experience in Science.

Soon after I began the study of Christian Science a wonderful healing of inebriety took place in our home. A member of our household inquired if Christian Science could heal him, stating that he had tried every cure known to the medical profession, but none had destroyed the desire for strong drink which his family believed he had inherited from an ancestor. He had given up all one holds dear in life, and had gone out among strangers. His healing was instantaneous and permanent. He returned to family and friends, and again became a useful member of society.
