I was a great sufferer for many years from internal
cancer and consumption. I was treated by the best of
physicians in New York, Minneapolis, and Duluth, and
was finally given up as incurable, when I heard of Christian
Science. A neighbor who had been healed of consumption,
kindly loaned me Science and Health by Mrs.
Eddy, which I read and became interested in. In three
months' time, I was healed, the truth conveyed to me by
this book being the healer, and not only of these diseases,
but I was made whole mentally as well. I have not been
in bed one day since, or rather in eleven years. I have
had many good demonstrations during this time, have
passed through many a "fiery trial," but this blessed truth
has caused me to stand, at times seemingly alone, and
God was with me.
I will mention a demonstration of painless childbirth
which I have had since coming to Idaho. Perhaps it may
help some sister who is looking through the Journal for
a demonstration of this kind, as I was before my baby
came. Good help being scarce here, I did my housework
up to the time I was confined, and was in perfect health.
I awoke my husband one morning at five o'clock, and at
half past five baby was born, no one being present but
my husband and myself. It was quite a surprise to the
rest of the family to see me sitting by the fire with a new
baby on my lap. My son got the breakfast, of which I
ate heartily; at noon I joined the family in the
diningroom. I was out on the porch the second day, around
the yard the third day, and have been perfectly well
ever since, which has been now over three years. To
one who had previously passed through agony untold,
with a physician in attendance, this seemed wonderful.
I hope this will interest some one who is seeking the truth,
and I wish to express my sincere love for our beloved
Leader, who has given us the "Key to the Scriptures." -
