With a heart full of gratitude...

With a heart full of gratitude for Christian Science and what it has meant to me, I wish to lift my voice in praise of this wonderful religion. It meets all our human needs when we apply its teachings sincerely and with consecration. I can say with Mary Baker Eddy (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 177), "The evidence of divine Mind's healing power and absolute control is to me as certain as the evidence of my own existence."

For many years I had heard people speak of "the truth" and would wonder what they meant. Soon after I began studying Christian Science I learned what Truth is through its healing effect. In fact, I learned the synonyms of God, one of which is Truth. I was impressed with the need to learn more of God, Truth, right then.

The healing that awakened me took place several years ago. I had a severe attack of sciatica. I had not had a doctor for many years, but neither had I relied solely upon Christian Science although I had been reading the textbook, Science and Health. This particular day my husband was unable to reach the Christian Science practitioner I had sometimes called upon for help. No doctor was available to come to see me until very late in the day. When the doctor did come, he said he could do nothing for me. It became clear to me that this was an opportunity to make the decision to have Christian Science treatment and rely upon it alone until the healing came.
