Christian Science means everything to me

Christian Science means everything to me. I have been healed of many sickness through the understanding of this wonderful religion. I was brought up in a strictly religious home and loved church and all things pertaining to it. When Science found me I was very sick in body and often prayed that I might die, thinking that would be the end of my troubles. A dear friend saw my need and told me of Christian Science. I lived some miles from a Science church and did not see this friend very often, for I was terrified of travelling even a few miles alone.

I borrowed a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. My first healing was of appendicitis. Some years before I had been too ill with this complaint to be operated upon. I was convalescent for six months and had to learn to walk. The doctor said that probably it would come again and that I was to be most careful of what I ate. Several times I had had pains and sickness, but would not think of an operation. I had only just known of Christian Science when suddenly I was taken ill. I was very much frightened and thought, If only my friend were here. After the sickness abated, I lay quietly in bed and the Bible verse came to mind, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil." I was immediately healed and got up and had supper; and from that day I have eaten whatever was put before me. I have never had a return. How different from the first attack!

I am thankful for so many dear friends, for in Science we are all friends all over the world. I was afraid of everything and everybody before coming into Science. I am happy to say that I am daily overcoming this fear. Through my own understanding I have been healed of fainting fits, a dreadful cough which came every year and lasted for months, nosebleed, sick headaches, and extreme nervousness. Through the help of a practitioner I was healed of the need of wearing glasses. For the practitioner who helped me to overcome the fear of lack at a trying time I am indeed grateful. For all the literature, the lectures, and the revised Hymnal, I express gratitude. Class instruction has been of great benefit to me, and I am happy that I have a loyal teacher and friend. I am a member of The Mother Church and a branch church.—(Mrs.) Daisy R. Strangeways, Blyth, Northumberland, England.
