I should like to give this testimony...

I should like to give this testimony of thanksgiving and praise to our omnipotent God, the one and only Mind.

My mother began studying Christian Science in 1911, when I was a little girl. A neighbor brought her a copy of The Christian Science Journal when my young brother, who had typhoid fever, pneumonia, and appendicitis, had been given up by the best doctors in the district. None of the practitioners listed in the Journal lived in our town, but the nearest one was sent a telegram, and work was taken up. The night my brother appeared to be in the greatest danger the fever broke, and he was released from the bondage of all these diseases.

When twelve years old I had been given up as incurable and had been in bed for three months when the same practitioner was called. I was back in school in a comparatively short time. During the years there have been many beautiful proofs of the omnipresent care and protection of divine Love. After graduating from high school I found myself holding offices in the business world that very few girls in their teens had the opportunity to hold. My older brother was completely protected during World War I.
