As far back as I can remember I had a most proud and disagreeable disposition, which I am glad to say has been displaced by love. My highest ambition now is to help all mankind on their journey to the realization of peace and harmony.

My first experience in Christian Science was the healing of a boil. I tried to overcome it but, being only a beginner in the study, I did not know how to meet it and had help, which I am glad to say was with most satisfactory results. Another wonderful healing was of eczema which had been pronounced incurable by physicians, and as a result of which I had hardly any hair left on my head and no eyelashes or eyebrows. The entire surface of the body was affected, and I was asked to stay away from school, but later through Christian Science I made up a whole year's work in a month's time. The healing was slow but it taught me patience and obedience, and when the demonstration was made my hair grew twice as thick and beautiful, and now I am a healthy girl.

For these and numerous other wonderful healings I am indeed grateful, but most of all I am grateful for the truth which if applied rightly meets all human needs. All I am and all I have I owe to Christian Science.
