HOPE AND COMFORT FOUND
I said I had turned to Christian Science for hope and comfort; my grief and worry were so great as to make of secondary consideration at that time a chronic throat trouble and minor ills; the former had hampered my childhood and young girlhood, and wherever I traveled I was constantly consulting physicians and trying new remedies to no effect. While studying the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, I was healed of this distressing trouble and a number of other ailments. One may imagine my happiness to find myself suddenly a well woman, with faith advanced to spiritual understanding of the promises of the Comforter! Then there began to be manifested in my daily life the "fruit of the Spirit," love, joy, and peace, compared with which the physical healing is hardly remembered except for gratitude. The conviction which comes with demonstration explains what Martin Luther meant when he said, "Here I stand; I can do no otherwise, so help me God."
I am glad of an opportunity to express my recognition of the wonderful work Mrs. Eddy has done for this age in placing Christianity on the basis of demonstrable Science, whose Principle is divine Love, and I am grateful that the Christ-Science has made this spiritual awakening a present possibility to me.
