My first healing through Christian Science occurred...

My first healing through Christian Science occurred about fourteen years ago, and was accomplished in one treatment, after weeks of suffering under materia medica. Not only this ailment, abscess in the head, but also eye trouble, for which I had worn glasses for years, disappeared as a result of this one Christian Science treatment. Strange to say, I did not follow up the study of Christian Science, even after such abundant proof of its healing efficacy until about three years later, after a very severe illness which left me in a much run down and very wretched physical condition; in fact one physician said at this time that I would not live six months. I once more turned to Christian Science for help, with the determination this time to stay with it. During the ten years that have followed I have witnessed, in my family of four, many healings, some of which were of nervousness, heart trouble, erysipelas, headaches, colds, ringworm, abscess in the ear, stomach trouble, effects of accidents, burns, and poison oak. My youngest child, seven years old, was born under Christian Science treatment and has never taken a drop of medicine. He is a very healthy, strong looking child, upon which many have commented. We have proved beyond all doubt that our supply is spiritual and continuous, hence entirely from God, and to say that we are grateful seems far from expressing our feelings. The way has often seemed dark and long, and discouragement so great that it was hard to press on, but His grace has always proved sufficient for every day's problem, and the way grows brighter as I press on, as it always will when we are willing to let Love lead us.

I feel my testimony would be incomplete if I did not mention what the patient, loving, faithful help given by practitioners during the dark hours has meant to me, also the study of the daily Lesson-Sermons and other Christian Science literature, so wisely established by our dear Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. My earnest desire is voiced in a stanza of one of her hymns (Poems, p. 13):—
