When I was about four years old, I began to suffer...

When I was about four years old, I began to suffer from enlarged tonsils, which I seemed to inherit from my mother. Later, there was a manifestation of adenoids. When I was five years old, my parents took up the study of Christian Science. There were no more material remedies used in our home; and many wonderful healings were performed. Christian Science has been the only remedy in our family for thirteen years; and it has met our every need.

However, the enlarged tonsils and the adenoids were very slow to yield. I received treatment from Christian Science practitioners, and my mother tried to help me; I also tried to apply my small understanding to the problem, but without definite results. One Sunday evening while attending church, I became absorbingly interested in the Lesson-Sermon from the Christian Science Quarterly. I listened so intently that I forgot everything else; and I had a very clear realization of the truth. Then there came a slight choking sensation in my throat, and my eyes began to water; and I realized that the adenoids and the enlarged tonsils were disappearing. In a very short time I was entirely free. This occurred more than a year ago, and I have been free ever since. I am able to breathe freely; my voice has become clearer; and my ability to enunciate has been much improved. This is only one of the many healings which I have received. I was carried safely through two attacks of influenza by this means, and there were no disastrous after effects.

My experience with the adenoids and enlarged tonsils has greatly increased my faith in Christian Science, because it has proved that Truth does heal, even though the healing may seem to be long delayed. I am grateful indeed for the little which I know of the truth, and especially grateful for the Christian Science Sunday School.
