I have received so much help...

I have received so much help and encouragement from reading the testimonies in our periodicals that I wish to give my written testimony. I pray that it may help someone as I have been helped.

About thirty-five years ago I began to study Christian Science. My need for something to lean on was very great, for my husband had passed on, leaving me with two small children to care for and with very little means. I was wretched and could not see how the rest of the world could be so gay when I was so miserable.

My mother came to stay with me and take care of my children while I went to work. It was then I met a woman who was evidently even worse off than I was, and yet she appeared to be joyous and happy. I asked her how she could be that way in view of what she had to meet. She told me she was a student of Christian Science, and that she knew she would always be taken care of because God had never failed her. She said that even when she was out of employment and did not know where her next meal for herself and three children would come from, their needs were always abundantly supplied. I was so impressed by her attitude that I took up the study of Christian Science.
