I must express my deep felt gratitude for having been led to Christian Science. Born in Belgium, I came to the United States in 1940 at the time the lowlands were invaded during World War II. As a child I had often dreamed of coming to America, but little did I realize I would really do so and eventually find this precious Christ, Truth, which was to save my home and my marriage and heal many other aspects of my human situation.

About fourteen years ago my husband began having severe attacks of mental illness. In a state of great fear and anguish, unable to cope with this, and no longer in control of his thoughts, he committed himself to a state hospital for the mentally ill. I was left with a seemingly dark and hopeless situation. I had a small child, considerable indebtedness, no position, and no one to help me.

It was at this point that I turned to Christian Science with my whole heart. I asked for help from a practitioner, who at one time had healed our little daughter in one treatment of a rash that had covered various parts of her body. With the constant prayerful treatment this practitioner gave me over a long period, the healing in our home gradually took place.
