Humbly and gratefully I submit...

Humbly and gratefully I submit my testimony of the healing power of Christian Science and express my appreciation of all the blessings that have come to me through the study and application of this wonderful truth.

Christian Science was not unknown to me, but I thought I did not need it. I was well, happy, and successfully employed. Occasionally when I needed help it was given me by a Christian Science practitioner. I thought that I was grateful, though each time I reverted to my old way of life, sometimes using materia medica for aid.

A few years ago I was stricken with a serious case of shingles, which did not yield to materia medica. Loving friends helped me to board a plane, and I flew to a distant city to be with my sister, who is a student of Christian Science. There I realized that I could not continue to serve both "God and mammon" (Matt. 6:24), and I chose God. A practitioner was called, and for the first time in a month I slept without a sedative. I began at once to improve, and through the work of the practitioner I was completely healed. During this period the smoking habit of many years dropped away, and with it went an almost continuous cough. I am grateful for this healing, for I had many times tried to overcome smoking through will power. Soon I began to spend long hours each day studying in a Christian Science Reading Room. Much erroneous thinking was overcome, and many healings were brought about.
