I feel that it is not right to withhold...

I feel that it is not right to withhold my written testimony any longer when I have been so blessed for more than thirty years. Through Christian Science I have had good health and plentiful supply, and sorrow for the loss of loved ones has been healed. All these years Science has been my only physician. Not once have I had any desire to use material remedies of any kind.

I became interested in this Science through the light which it threw on the Bible, which had become almost a closed book to me. I did not take it up for physical healing, but I have had some beautiful healings and more than once have been protected from accidents. When we are obedient to God's law we are protected. From early girlhood I had a desire to know more about Jesus and his teaching. When I read the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, I knew I had found what I had been searching for.

A few years ago I was attacked by the symptoms of an ugly ailment. I began at once to deny the reality of anything that is not good, knowing that God made all and all He made is good, and that there is no law to create or protect error of any kind. I never once felt ill, but continued to declare the truth all day, and by morning the condition had entirely disappeared. It was Sunday and I went to church, rejoicing and giving thanks that I knew a little of Christian Science. I have experienced dental work and extraction of teeth without pain by the application of this Science.
