I have derived so much benefit...

From the January 1919 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I have derived so much benefit from the testimonies that I would like to tell a few of the many blessings I have received since being interested in Christian Science. In the spring of 1917 I was healed of an abscess on my eye. A specialist said the eye was in a very bad condition and I must come every day for treatment. He also gave me medicine to use at home. He did not know I was interested in Christian Science, and I never would have consulted him, but a member of my family got very much alarmed when the eye became so swollen that I could not see out of it. As soon as I arrived home after seeing the specialist, I burned the medicine and telephoned to a Christian Science practitioner. After three absent treatments my eye was perfectly well.

For this demonstration I am indeed very grateful, as it proved to me that all things are possible to God and if we will only trust Him more He will certainly take care of us. I am sure I could not get along without Christian Science; it helps me in all the affairs of daily life. I have had many wonderful healings, and Christian Science has taught me how to study the Bible. Before becoming interested in this teaching I very seldom read the Bible, because I could not seem to understand it or derive any good from reading it. "Now I read it daily. I am very thankful for all the authorized literature and read it all my spare time. Christian Science is more to me than everything else in this world, and I hope to know more of it every day.—
