When I first looked into Christian Science I had no thought of physical healing but simply read Science and Health because a relative gave it to me to read. The book so appealed to my reason that I kept on reading. After a few days I decided that I would go to a practitioner to see if I could get help for constipation, a trouble I had had from childhood. I was completely healed in two treatments. Seeing the results in my case, my husband had treatment and was also healed. From then on I began to study in earnest and was soon able to make demonstrations for myself. About two years after this our baby son was healed instantly of convulsions caused by ptomaine poisoning. Our little daughter was also healed of pneumonia in one treatment. In both of these instances the practitioner was miles away, showing that distance is no obstacle to Mind.

We have had countless demonstrations of the power of Mind over physical ills of every sort, and I am very grateful for these, but much more grateful for the freedom from fear that this study has given me, and the sense of perfect trust that no matter what trouble comes, physical or otherwise, there is always the perfect remedy, divine Principle, right at hand. To know that it never fails gives the peace that passes understanding.
