It is difficult to express all that Christian Science has meant to me in the last ten years, during which I have gradually emerged from a very material state of mind to one that is at least joyfully seeking spirituality. For a number of years before I had my first healing in Christian Science I had heard of this wonderful religion from a dear sister who was a student of it, but at that time there seemed to me so many things more worth while than religion that her words did no more than ruffle the surface to what seemed to me a very pleasant way to go through life.

Then came sickness. Material means failed me. Under the care of the best and kindest of physicians I grew steadily worse. The trouble was ulcers of the stomach, and physicians said it might develop into cancer. At this point I became desperately afraid. I could not eat or sleep, and when Christian Science was proposed by the manager of the hotel where I lived I decided to try it. After the first treatment, the condition seemed much worse, but the dear practitioner explained what is known in Science as "chemicalization" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 401), and then lovingly gave me a second treatment. She asked me to repeat "the scientific statement of being" from Science and Health (p. 468) whenever the pain grew intense, and it was while repeating this healing truth that I received my first real glimpse of the power of Spirit to heal. At the words, "God is All-in-all," I felt a sense of peace steal over me and I knew I was healed. I slept that night as I had not slept in years, and from that night the ulcers disappeared.
