From the October 1942 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This humble effort to express my gratitude for Christian Science is also given with a sincere desire that it will help others.

I took up the study of Christian Science rather gradually, first attending the Sunday services, and occasionally reading the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. The strongest influence was the exemplary life of a relative who was the first in our family to take up the study of Christian Science. After I became a member of a branch church and of The Mother Church I gained a deep desire for active participation in this great movement, and I am deeply grateful for the privilege of serving.

I have experienced many physical healings; some have been instantaneous, and others have come after months of metaphysical work. The latter required mental discipline, and brought me a priceless lesson. I was instantaneously healed of influenza and head colds; an embedded wisdom tooth was extracted after an hour's effort by a dentist, but it did not give me one bit of pain at any time during or after the experience; and a misplaced vertebra, which had caused so much soreness from my shoulder to the waist that I was scarcely able to move, gently and harmoniously snapped back into place when a deep sense of gratitude for the high ideal Christian Science gives us filled my consciousness. Every bit of soreness vanished and I was entirely free.
