Christian Science was first brought to my notice when a little nephew had been given up by the doctors after a serious operation and Christian Science treatment was sought for him. With a great desire to help I asked if I might read also. I was given a copy of The Christian Science Journal and before I had finished reading the first testimony I was healed of defective eyesight on account of which I had worn glasses for twelve years and had been told that I could never go without them. While I was reading, a film seemed to come over the glasses, and though I tried in every way to clean them I found it impossible to see through them. As I was very anxious to finish the testimony, which had impressed me more than anything I had ever read, I left off the glasses and put my hand up over my left eye, which was considered much worse than the other, and tried to read that way. This occurred about seven-thirty in the evening and it was about nine-thirty when I discovered that unconsciously my hand had fallen and that I had been reading for nearly two hours without my glasses. My sister-in-law said that she had read a testimony where a lady had been healed of wearing glasses by reading Science and Health, but I replied that I had not read the book so could not be healed.

The next morning I awoke expecting one of the terrible headaches which always followed the slightest strain or excitement, but to my surprise there was none. I did not wear my glasses that day but as we were to attend the Christian Science church that evening I put my glasses on. The headache came that I had expected all day and I suffered all the time I was there. As we left the church I said that my head ached so hard I did not know how I could get home. I was asked to remove my glasses, which I did, and after going the two blocks to the car line I was again asked how my head felt. To my surprise I had no headache. The remark was then made, "You must be healed." The next day I went to see the practitioner who had my little nephew's case and I asked him if he had treated me or how I could have been healed. His remark was, "You believed what you were reading, did you not?" and when I answered, "Yes," he said, "'Thy faith hath made thee whole,' and I hope you are grateful enough to read the book, 'Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures' by Mrs. Eddy, to find out how you were healed." I left his office as one walking on air and on my way home made up my mind to trust God in all things.
