The first thing that I read when I receive The Christian Science Journal or the Sentinel is the testimony section; so I feel that I must do my part by telling of some of the many reasons I have for being very grateful for Christian Science.

We have had many proofs of God's healing efficacy, but one experience especially will always stand as a bulwark of strength to me. Our son manifested symptoms of rheumatic fever, and although I studied and worked as we are taught in Christian Science, the condition grew worse. I prayed humbly to God to show me how to overcome my own fear and then called a practitioner, to whom I explained the situation and asked for treatment. I was told to take a firm stant regardless of what material sense was trying to tell me. Within a few days all evidence of the disease had disappeared, and our boy was completely healed. For this demonstration of Truth's healing power I shall never cease to be humbly grateful. I should like to express my appreciation of my husband's attitude at that time. Although he is not yet a member of a Church of Christ, Scientist, he goes to church with me, and he approves of my stand.
