I have felt for some time that I should acknowledge some of the many healings I have had in Christian Science, that some one might be helped as the testimonies in the Sentinel have helped and cheered me many times. Since childhood I had suffered from sick headaches which each year became more frequent and severe. I consulted doctors of various schools, who gave me medicine that helped to ward them off, but when they came nothing would give relief for about sixty hours but a hypodermic. I had several apparent healings but did not get entire freedom from the attacks. I also had an internal growth which the doctors said might lie dormant for years, and there was nothing which they could do. While being treated by a Christian Science practitioner for the headaches, the growth as well as the headaches disappeared, although I had not spoken of it to the practitioner.

In 1904 one of the family was sick and called a doctor. I asked him to look at one of my eyes which at times became momentarily blind. He examined it and said, Sometime you will have to have an operation, but don't think about it or tell any one." I have not had an operation and my eyes are all right, and I have never worn glasses. I know it was Christian Science and reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy that healed them. I have also been healed of pneumonia, severe colds, a dislocated knee, gallstones, and acute indigestion. I am so grateful to Mrs. Eddy and to the practitioners who have helped me and have been so kind and patient with me. My desire is for more understanding, more love. I read the Lesson-Sermon each day, and have the Sentinel and nearly all of Mrs. Eddy's works, for which I am truly grateful.
