I am truly thankful for the various physical healings which I have experienced in Christian Science. The one outstanding healing is that of a broken ankle, for which a prominent surgeon had told me that there was "no earthly help." This healing took place during my first half year of study of the Bible in connection with the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I was so eagerly seeking Truth for Truth's sake, that I never gave a thought to my ankle until the day I realized that it was completely healed. Since then, nearly three years ago, I have enjoyed normal strength and use of my foot after twelve years of suffering. After two months of study of Christian Science I was able to discontinue the use of eyeglasses, which I had worn when at work for about eight years. I am also so thankful for the many instances of comfort and healing that have come to others.

Better by far than any physical healing is the wonderful joy, peace, spiritual uplift, and strength that follows even the least little effort in the way of right thinking and doing. Before I became interested in Christian Science I had "eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping." But God has turned my sorrows into joy, and with all my heart I thank Him, Christ Jesus, and our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for Christian Science. I also owe so much gratitude to the kind and patient practitioner, and to all the dear friends who have helped me constantly through their stern rebukes, loving gentleness, and good example.
