Before coming into a practical understanding of Christian Science...

Before coming into a practical understanding of Christian Science I seemed to be looking in vain for happiness, which I believed was entirely dependent upon persons, circumstances, and conditions over which I had no control. I have had to change this erroneous concept, and have discovered that the thing which most needs control and correcting is my own thinking; and instead of being a victim of circumstances, I have found that I may be a victor, in spite of circumstances, to the extent that I apply this truth honestly and correctly to every problem.

Christian Science is helping me to overcome many undesirable traits of character, such as resentment, criticism, selfishness, self-condemnation, impatience, and ingratitude, and to replace them with loving and tolerant thoughts of unselfishness and gratitude. The physical ailments healed include heart trouble, nervousness, catarrh, goiter, hemorrhoids, colds, and I have had the experience of painless childbirth. The heart trouble disappeared without any specific treatment shortly after I began the study of Christian Science, although several years previous to my taking up this Science I had been examined by a friend of the family, an expert heart specialist, who pronounced the condition incurable. During the ensuing years I have had to undergo physical examinations for life insurance, and each time have passed the examination perfectly.

My son has been healed of colds, measles, mumps, and has experienced the protecting power of Truth during so-called contagion. On one occasion, when he had run a rusty nail into his heel, fear manifested by a member of the family because we did not submit to medical attention was overcome and the healing took place almost immediately. When this boy was bitten by a strange dog much fear manifested by grandparents was quickly overcome, and the healing was completed within a few days.
