About eight years ago Christian Science was presented...

About eight years ago Christian Science was presented to me, and I feel so grateful and happy about it. Many times have I been able to see the healing effects of Truth. Inflammation of the gums disappeared within three days after treatment from a practitioner. Two years ago I had a cold which had lasted a month. I had not thought of immediately applying the truth in order to be healed. Since then I have understood that when one really loves God, one cannot wish to live long with what seems to deny His presence and His love. About that time a practitioner came to see me. The cold had seemed to grow worse and worse every day. I well remember that the friend did not mention the physical condition, but began to speak so clearly of God's presence, power, and love that I was instantaneously healed. The healing has been permanent.

I also remember how loss of voice was beautifully healed. Not knowing at that time what treatment exactly was, I decided to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. As I was pondering over a few sentences, it was suddenly shown to me how angry and irritable I had been lately. I then began to realize that God's child reflects patience and love. At the very minute I decided to be more patient and more loving, my voice came back as clear as ever. I have sometimes felt ill, but it never has lasted long when I applied the truth. I do feel grateful for these physical healings, which are a visible proof of God's love; but I am still more grateful for the changes that have taken place in my disposition and for the way I now look upon life.
