About thirteen years ago, my husband made the remark, "I think I will send for 'Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures' and see what it is like; I have heard that many people have been healed by reading that book." Knowing it was the textbook of Christian Science, I quickly urged him to have nothing to do with it, for all my life I had had an unreasonable prejudice against what I thought Christian Science was.

Some time later, my husband visited a Christian Science practitioner, and was healed of stomach trouble, from which he had suffered for over twenty years, and was wonderfully benefited in many other ways. He wanted me to take up the study; but I was still bitterly opposed to it. Realizing I had nothing upon which to stand, I consented to read the textbook, solely to find a better platform from which to continue my arguments against it. Before I had finished the first chapter I was completely healed of all prejudice; it was wonderful to me. I commenced at once to put the truth it taught into practice and to prove its worth.

I had worn glasses since I was ten years old, and had been told by specialists that I would always have to wear them. After getting a glimpse of this truth, I realized that I did not need to be in bondage to this false belief; so I took them off and continued my reading. I have never had to put them on since that day. This was a wonderful proof to me; and I continued to apply what I had learned of this truth. Gradually, sick headaches, extreme nervousness, and many other discordant conditions were entirely overcome. From that time on I have been striving to gain a better understanding of divine Principle as revealed by Christian Science.
