I came into Christian Science for healing about ten years ago. At that time I was in great pain, and although I was wearing an instrument internally I got no relief. In about three months I was healed of pain with the help of a Christian Science practitioner, but the healing of nervousness took much longer. Only those who have been under this bondage can realize the joy of the healing.

After I had studied Christian Science for about a year, the instrument I was wearing collapsed. This was wonderful because it was made of steel and covered with rubber. However, the practitioner told me I was ready to do without the support—and I was. Since then I have had my third baby under Christian Science treatment, and experienced very little pain. Christian Science is a great help to a mother, as mother-love so often seems bound up with fear. I realize that this fear is only ignorance of our Father-Mother God, and as I gain more understanding I am learning to trust more to God, who is Love.

We have had many proofs of quick healing in Science with the children, who have been healed, among other things, of measles in two days, mumps in twenty-four hours, and whooping cough, yielded in a fortnight. In Science we learned from Mrs. Eddy that "an improved belief cannot retrograde" (Science and Health, p. 442); and there was no convalescence.
