After twelve years of receiving many great blessings from Christian Science, I am glad to tell a little of what it has done for me. I was a nervous and physical wreck, and had been under a specialist's care for nine months without receiving any relief. When I asked why he could not help me, he gave me this answer: "If I could get control of your mind I could heal you in three weeks' time." As he was also a dear friend, he was told of a deep sorrow through which I was passing, and he used that as his excuse for not proving his skill as a specialit. I immediately asked for his bill and took every bottle and box of medicine I had and emptied them out on the ground. Within two weeks I was led to attend my first Christian Science service through a dear friend telling me she was going to take up Christian Science for herself and her family. From that day to this I have never tasted medicine.

My first healing came about through the reading of Science and Health: I was freed from the necessity of wearing two pairs of glasses. Then I went to a practitiner and was healed of chronic bowel disorder, supposed to have been inherited. Some members of the family had gone through severe operations for this trouble and I was getting ready to do the same when Christian Science came to my help. I had throat trouble in such a severe form that I would nearly choke while waiting for a doctor to give me relief. It took the form of croup, and one doctor said I need not be surprised if I lost my voice after a hard attack. As my mother had passed out from throat throat and lung trouble, it filled me with fear. This ailment also was entirely overcome through Christian Science.
