It is two years since I heard about Christian Science...

It is two years since I heard about Christian Science; a friend telling me of a wonderful cause of healing of spinal complaint. I had been considered very delicare from my birth, and was now suffering from spinal and stomach trouble. The physicians told me that I could never be curied, and only by lying on my back half the day could I find relief. We tried all kinds of medical treatment, which did me no good but only made me weaker. When I was sixteen my parents took me to another physician, who advised a course of massage, which I had for two years. During that time I got very disheartened and depressed, as nothing seemed to to me any good and all my time was taken up going to doctors and doing exercises.

It was just at this time that we heard about Christian Science, and my mother decided at once to try what it would do for me. The nearest practitioner lived in Manchester, and after many difficulties we found her at home. I then had my first treatment and she loaned me a copy of Science and Health. My mother and I returned home that night and the next morning I got up free from pain, the first time for two years! This was indeed wonderful to me, for I had suffered intensely, in fact I did not know what it was to be without pain. I continued treatment for about a month and was completely healed. In our home life we have passed through deep trouble in connection with financial matters, but we have found daily comfort in Christian Science. It has never failed us, and all we have we owe entirely to the new understanding it has brought us. I am very grateful to God, and also to Mrs. Eddy for her beautiful life. My great desire is to show my gratitude by helping others and gaining a fuller understanding of this glorious truth.
