For the truth taught in Science and Health...

For the truth taught in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I am deeply grateful. To know that the kingdom of God is within reach of one's thinking has completely replaced the unhappiness and lack of confidence I felt as a child. Although I attended Sunday School all through my early years and finally taught a Sunday School class in the church to which I belonged, I did not know God as ever-present good or man as His reflection.

Through the help of a Christian Science practitioner headaches disappeared, and I gained a sense of spiritual joy and of the meaning of life as Love. Although the headaches had been so severe as to be almost unbearable, the healing was complete and has been permanent. I forgot about all physical discord in honestly and humbly studying the truth. I found that it was something that could never be taken away, an answer to every need. Much credit is due to the loving care given this case by the practitioner and to her understanding of the perfect, healing truth.

Another wonderful healing came through holding to the truth about growth. After my brother had lifted a heavy object while at work, a lump appeared on one wrist, which he was unable to use much without experiencing weakness. A member of the family wanted it examined by a physician, who suggested that an operation be performed to remove what he called a cyst. My brother and I held to the truth that the only growth is growth in the understanding of Love. Soon he found he could use the wrist, and the healing took place. With great joy I thank God for the truth that meets every need.—(Miss) A. Marie Brown, Silver Spring, Maryland.
