As a child I was not strong and had more than the usual...

As a child I was not strong and had more than the usual number of children's diseases. After growing to young womanhood, I suffered with an intestinal disorder which affected my whole system. It was impossible for me to walk any distance, and I spent the greater part of my time on a couch. The various medical doctors who attended me agreed in saying that I would outgrow this condition, but the disease became chronic.

Although I had seen the healing results of Christian Science in the case of a friend, I was very skeptical as to whether it would heal me. But the proof that I needed was not long delayed. The day this friend was leaving I had a very violent attack of acute gastritis. There was no medicine in the house that I could take, and when she learned of the situation she asked me if I should like to try her medicine. I told her she could treat me if she wanted to. This friend gave me a treatment in Christian Science and told me to eat my luncheon, assuring me that all was well. In less than half an hour I was completely well, and I have never suffered from that or any similar complaint from that day to this. I was healed, however, of more than gastritis. I was healed of the belief that I was God-forsaken, for it had been proved to me that God loved me; and, best of all, I could prove that He would take care of me always, for here was a Science that I could understand and demonstrate.
