During the twenty years that I have been a student of Christian Science I have had many healings, for which I am increasingly grateful.

I was healed of lung trouble, anaemia, and influenza; and a very severe attack of pneumonia was healed through the faithful work of a Christian Science practitioner, when it was thought by all who saw me that I should pass on. Soon after this healing my hair began to fall out, and it was thought that this condition was the result of my having been so ill. About this time I was also in need of a home, as circumstances made it necessary for me to move. This was rather a difficult thing for me to do at the time, and I felt a sense of homelessness and discouragement. In two more weeks my hair had all come out and I was quite bald. After the hair was analyzed, a message was sent to me saying that the hair had come out by the roots and therefore would never grow again. Not for a moment did I accept this suggestion, but turned to the Bible and Science and Health for a solution of the difficulty. I remembered Jesus' statement, "The very hairs of your head are all numbered." I turned away from the testimony of the senses, and humbly sought "the kingdom of God, and his righteousness." I felt a comforting sense of peace and gratitude for the good already received, and I knew that I was under divine protection.

Two statements from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy were very helpful to me; one on page 425, "Consciousness constructs a better body when faith in matter has been conquered," and the other on page 447, "The recuperative action of the system, when mentally sustained by Truth, goes on naturally." Weeks and months went by, and each time I thought of the hair I declared the truth. After two years I began to see signs of the hair reappearing, and in a short time it had grown again, long and thick and better than ever before. I feel very grateful for this lesson, for it brought an assurance and confidence that with God all things are possible, and that with a heart filled with love we can have no want nor feel any loss. Through this experience I also gained a better sense of home—the consciousness of Love's presence. This was followed by my being able to have a home of my own.
