As one who has experienced the blessings of Christian Science from the age of about six, I can testify to its unfailing help in all circumstances. I deeply appreciate Mary Baker Eddy's self-sacrifice and courage in giving up the approval and support of all dear to her in order to establish for mankind the way through which blessings and healings similar to those recorded in the Bible are available now and for all time.

In my childhood I was healed almost instantaneously of mumps, measles, and chicken pox, and a little later—while I was a farm student—of a badly poisoned leg. In this last instance I was wearing farm boots and working again in two weeks. I never had more than one day in bed at any time, and the healings were always the outcome of my mother's prayer, given in accordance with the teachings of Christian Science. I am truly grateful for these healings, which are unforgettable, but I had not then learned to do my own work, and I continued with my life in acute shyness, which made me dread meeting new people.

It is for the lessons learned about my true being and work, through a later experience, that I am most grateful.
