Christian Science was brought to the attention of my family when I was about nine years old. Because of the very anxious and fearful thought held over me by my parents, I had never been healthy. Any unusual excitement and many foods caused a stomach disorder, and I suffered from nausea. Healings of this disorder, malarial fever, and nervous chills were among the first that I experienced. Through the faithful work of a practitioner I was healed of influenza in a week. The pain was so intense when this attack came that I could not be still.

A more recent healing was that of periodic severe pain and cramps. Although always helped by a practitioner or through my own work, I was not healed until I realized that I was being mesmerized into accepting this condition as real and necessary. I am grateful to be free from this error.

I am also grateful for our practitioners, who are ever ready to help us in time of need; for our lecturers; and for The Christian Science Board of Directors. I am deeply grateful for "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, for the Manual of The Mother Church, and for all the other guides that are given to us.—(Mrs.) Mildred Cherry Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
