Christian Science was brought to my notice through the healing of my sister, who was bedridden and had tried various methods to restore her health, but without success. This was about twelve years ago, and since that time Christian Science has proven to me over and over again, the truthfulness of its teaching in regard to God and the relationship of His children to Him, and also its efficacy in overcoming physical ills of every description, although my own experience has been more a chapter of accidents, than of disease or sickness.
The understanding of the Truth of Being which Christian Science has given me has been applied in every time of need, and has not failed in any instance. Without going into a detailed history of each particular case, suffice it to say, that pains from wounds have been destroyed immediately; bleeding instantly stopped; swellings reduced in a very short space of time; a strained back, caused by lifting a heavy weight, was perfectly healed in three days, with no sign of weakness manifested in the ten years since the healing was done; besides preventing soreness, inflammation, marks on the body, and after-effects from numerous other cuts and bruises, which would have been serious without the ever-present help of Christian Science, to make "every whit whole."
A few days ago it was my privilege to receive another proof of the Scripture, that "God is a very present help in trouble," and under more trying circumstances than any other of my experiences.
