Christian Science means everything to me

Christian Science means everything to me. I first heard of it about eleven years ago, but was not then ready to accept it. A copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy was given to me, but it was not used.

Five years ago our little girl came home from school feeling very ill. Two doctors who were called in diagnosed the case as diphtheria and infantile paralysis. This alarmed and discouraged me very much as we had just passed through a siege of sickness—two operations for our little boy for what the doctor termed osteomyelitis, and also an operation for myself.

Mrs. Eddy says, "The sharp experiences of belief in the supposititious life of matter, as well as our disappointments and ceaseless woes, turn us like tired children to the arms of divine Love" (Science and Health, p. 322). A member of our family who had long been interested in Christian Science finally persuaded me to have Christian Science help for the little girl. It was not until several days later that I realized that she had been instantaneously healed while this relative stood at the telephone talking to the practitioner, as she ceased to cry with the pain in her side and asked for something to eat. I kept looking for the pain to reappear; but needless to say it did not. A sense of weakness kept her in bondage two or three days longer, after which she returned to school.
