About two years ago I heard Christian Science spoken of...

About two years ago I heard Christian Science spoken of for the first time. My husband and I had undertaken a little trip and stopped to see a friend. As soon as we arrived I was attacked with acute rheumatism to such a degree that it was impossible for me to place one foot before the other. Our friend spoke to me of Christian Science and its blessings, and I was able to continue the little trip. Since then I have been healed of other attacks of rheumatism, and, thanks to the kind help of a practitioner, was able to avoid unpleasant complications after a tooth had been badly extracted.

Last January I felt the return of an arthritic attack in the foot—an affliction, dating from my earliest childhood, with which I had suffered at intervals all my life. At twentyone I had a serious operation which was to prevent all return of the difficulty. But it did nothing; for the trouble returned. I had also been three months at one time in a plaster cast, so that I was in a very bad condition when last January I was again seized with this trouble. I resolved, knowing of Christian Science, to treat myself, but could not obtain any results, having greater fear than I ever had had in my life. My foot looked bad. Then my husband went to ask help from a practitioner, who treated me absently, and corresponded with me.

One day the practitioner wrote telling me to put my foot on the ground and to have no fear. I was surprised to be able to do this, and to do my housework. Later, one night, I was awakened and glanced at my foot. What was my surprise to see blood flowing! My husband and I left at the earliest possible hour to see the practitioner. I shall never forget her comforting words and the courage she gave me to go on working against fear. I overcame it when I could substitute truth for error, that is to say, assimilate the understanding of my true being, which is not and cannot be ill. I am happy to be able to say I am healed. My gratitude goes out to God, whom I have learned to love and to understand, thanks to the wonderful Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, to whom my gratitude extends.
