Perhaps many will be encouraged to read this testimony from one who has passed her ninetieth year. I have much reason to be grateful to God for Christian Science and its teaching that He is infinite Mind, Life, Truth, and Love, and that man is God's perfect idea.

About forty years ago, before taking up the study of this wonderful religion, I was in a state of great shock and grief. One night I had been awakened from sleep to be informed that my husband, away on a fishing trip at a lake, had drowned when his boat capsized during a storm. My sorrow seemed to obscure my normal sense of reasoning, and I feared I was losing my mind.

I was a member of an orthodox church, and I earnestly prayed to God for help, as I had been taught to do, but without avail. Often the thought of Christian Science came to me, for I had observed some of its healing effects. But it seemed to me it would be wrong to turn away from my own church to this "new" religion. However, the urge to do this continued; so I prayed for light and guidance regarding a decision.
