About fourteen years ago I was rather annoyed at my dear mother's desire for me to learn something of Christian Science because I was crippled and bowed together like the woman in the Bible, and could in no wise lift myself up. I "had suffered many things of many physicians," but was not healed, though they surely did their best according to their understanding. I was antagonistic to what I thought Christian Science to be, without having the slightest understanding of it. But one night when I simply could not stand one degree more of pain, I asked that a practitioner be called, saying I must have it if there was anything in it. How ashamed I have been since, when I have thought that we will not come to our heavenly Father, our real Father-Mother God, until driven like the prodigal!

The practitioner could not come to me, but said she would treat me and I could come to her the next day. I remember she was told, "Oh! she cannot; she is ill in bed." But she answered, so lovingly, "Yes, she can." And I did! It was a marvel to me; and from that day I have been hungry for Christian Science. I have been healed, just by reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, of fallen arches, bad headaches, severe burns, and a cyst on my forehead; and through seeing myself as God's perfect child I am overcoming criticism and bad temper.
