When I first turned to Christian Science I was wonderfully helped, being healed of a number of ailments that had troubled me for a long time. The following spring I had what seemed to me a wonderful healing. Rejoicing in my new found health, I took an active part in the spring housecleaning. Having my hands much in water, with a preparation used for cleaning, they became very painful. At the end of the week they were red and swollen, the skin over the knuckles being cracked. As I pondered over what had brought about such a result, I found fear at the bottom of it all; and while the error was being uncovered I was conscious that my hands were healing. When I arose they felt neither stiff nor sore, but perfectly natural. The following week I did more of the same work without experiencing any ill effects.

A few years later I suffered from a severe attack of inflammatory rheumatism. For two weeks I was unable to go downstairs. My knees and ankles were stiff and badly swollen, and at times I suffered intense pain. I was so ill that some members of the family thought I should have a physician and a nurse, but I declined both, desiring to depend entirely upon Christian Science treatment for healing and upon those in my home for what other attention I might need. After about three weeks' treatment I was able to walk to the practitioner's home, which was about two blocks away, and in another week I could move around as usual. Soon after that all traces of the disease left me.

My gratitude to and love for Mrs. Eddy increase with my understanding of the Science she taught and lived, and my earnest desire is to make of my life a living and true witness of her wonderful and glorious discovery.
