It is with much joy that I can testify to the healing and regenerating power of Christian Science. As a young child I had a long history of ill-health and frailty and so caught almost everything that was about, but as I grew older, I realized how much I was missing through this state of semi-invalidism and made up my mind to overcome it. I succeeded to a great degree, but was still suffering from weakness; and after our second son was born, I had to take afternoon rests so that I could carry on with household duties.

Soon after this my mother became very ill, and a kind friend told us of Christian Science. I did not realize that I would get so much benefit from the study of our textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, but from that time on I began to get stronger, feel much freer, and have more patience, whereas once I would be easily irritated. Soon I sought membership in a branch church and then in The Mother Church. I have had much joy and growth in serving in a branch church and feel that I have come a long way since those days.

About six years ago I was sitting in an armchair one evening feeling very tried, which was not unusual in those days. It was a weariness almost to the point of pain. I was conscious of a new step I was about to take—class instruction—and felt I must work out this condition in Science.
