Words seem inadequate to express...

Words seem inadequate to express the profundity of my gratitude for Christian Science. However, the following verse explains it in some measure (Ps. 40:5):"Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered."

Until my marriage I had not heard of Christian Science. My mother-in-law, a widow, had with scarcely any regular income reared five children from the time the eldest was fifteen. Even though I knew nothing of her religion, I was nevertheless impressed when she would tell of occasions when she had relied entirely on her understanding of God as the source of man's true, spiritual supply.

Yet it was many years later that I began the earnest study of Christian Science, for after our first son was born, he had one illness after another, and seldom a week passed that we did not have a visit from the doctor at least once. The baby was treated for an intestinal disorder for about a year, and finally the doctor said that he could do no more to help him.
