It is with deep gratitude for all...

It is with deep gratitude for all that Christian Science has given me that I offer this testimony as a positive evidence of its healing efficacy. To be able to follow the example of Christ Jesus through the teachings of our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, is a priceless privilege.

A healing through mental surgery which came by my relying wholly upon God has been a steppingstone that has helped me in working out other problems. For many years there had been a morbid growth on the side of my head. It had been rather dormant, and I had denied its presence only spasmodically. Finally it began to enlarge, and it became so painful that it was difficult for me to wear a hat or to sleep on that side.

When I started to work specifically in Christian Science, I recalled that the year the growth appeared I had felt that a friend was very unfair in a business deal. In my desire to purify my thinking and obey God I used Mrs. Eddy's statement in Science and Health (p. 242): "Self-love is more opaque than a solid body. In patient obedience to a patient God, let us labor to dissolve with the universal solvent of Love the adamant of error,—self-will, self-justification, and self-love,—which wars against spirituality and is the law of sin and death."
