It is from a heart filled with gratitude that I send this testimony. From childhood I was extremely delicate, and as I grew into womanhood I suffered from many ailments. I passed through two operations, one of which was considered very critical at that time. For over thirty years I was in bondage to severe headaches; I hardly knew what it was to be free from them. I tried many material remedies, and everything was done for me that promised any help, but all to no avail. I finally resorted to an opiate for relief from my sufferings, believing there was no other help for me. Nearly eight years ago, however, I turned to Christian Science for healing, and I can joyfully say that the headaches have passed into their native nothingness. My healing came gradually, through the understanding gained from the study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy and the loving help of a practitioner. I now have better health than I had ever known before, and am able to live a happy, active life, helping myself and others.
I am very grateful for class instruction. I am unable to express in words my thankfulness to God and my gratitude to our beloved Leader for all of these blessings, and especially for the spiritual uplift. I am striving to follow St. Paul's admonition, "Glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."—Vineland, N. J.
