I first heard of Christian Science about four years ago, and I am very grateful for the many blessings which I have received from its beautiful teachings during that time.

One day I was taking a roast of meat from the oven when I fell backwards, throwing the boiling grease over my bare arms. I repeated the Scientific Statement of Being, and was able to overcome the pain in a very short time. Next day my arms were blistered, but I kept on declaring God's allness, and before evening all trace of error was gone.

A short time after this, I was again doing some cooking on a gas stove and had left the handle of the pan I was using over a lighted gas jet. On turning round I grasped the handle and burned my hand. At once I tried to look away from self to Truth, and kept on doing my work at the same time. I forgot to turn the handle aside from the flame, and later I turned from the table and grasped it again, and this time my hand stuck to the hot iron. In drawing it away, the skin came off the palm of my hand, causing great pain. Almost at once I took up the thought of God's love and that I as His child could not suffer. In a few hours I was calm, and before retiring that night the pain was completely destroyed. In the morning I could scarcely tell which hand I had burned.
