For eleven years I have been studying the books written by Mary Baker Eddy and other authorized Christian Science literature. I am most grateful for them all; my whole outlook on life with its many problems has been altered. My daughters have been healed quickly of whooping cough, of quinsy in three days, measles, mumps, severe earache, also throat trouble, and they are enjoying the benefit of being taught in the Christian Science Sunday School.

My first physical healing was that of an abscess in a tooth. I had frequently suffered from this trouble and had lost several teeth owing to the same cause; but this time my husband and I put into practice the little understanding we had of Christian Science and I did not go to a dentist. We declared the truth of "the scientific statement of being," as given on page 468 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and denied that matter had sensation. In an hour the pain ceased, the swelling quickly went down, and I was able to eat a meal comfortably. This was ten years ago. The symptoms have reappeared, but each time, as I have remembered the blessing of the first healing, and held steadily to the truth, refraining from mentioning the symptoms of pain, they have soon been overcome.

In the summer of 1930 my eyes troubled me for about two months. To read or sew was very difficult, for the words, or stitches, appeared all jumbled together, and to thread a needle became guesswork. This worried me considerably; but, remembering the many testimonies I had read, and also those heard at Wednesday evening meetings, I set to work to overcome this error by declaring that there was no power to prevent me from doing anything that was lawful for me to do, and by remembering firmly that all power and sight come from God. I continued doing my reading and needlework, patiently and persistently, and in a short time my eyes regained their normal condition; and they have remained normal. I have also been healed of constant backache, to which I had been subject from girlhood; of neuritis, rheumatism, and nervous sickness.
