Over nineteen years ago, at the age of seven, I was instantaneously healed through Christian Science of acute appendicitis. I has suffered from a previous attack for many weeks under a physician's care. When the beautiful light of Christian Science entered our home, my mother, long a despairing sufferer from many complaints and disorders, was completely healed; and I, too, was made healthy and strong and was liberated from the various false beliefs and so-called laws with which I had been bound. A few of the outstanding healings I have experienced are the setting and mending of a broken bone, the healing of a sprained ankle, of an infection, and complete immunity in submitting to a compulsory vaccination upon entering the state university.

During thirteen years' attendance at the Christian Science Sunday School, I learned to study the Bible and Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, and to apply the teachings contained therein to the solution of my everyday problems. Through this application I have had continuing good health, and was enabled to attain a very high record of proficiency at school as well as a perfect attendance record. When the time arrived for choosing a profession, I was led by divine Mind away from the course that seemed right to personal sense and into another course which developed into a good position that enabled me to become self-supporting and to support my parents when the necessity arose.

Upon reaching the age of twenty, I experienced the great joy of becoming a church member and of sharing the blessings of church activity, and then I had the provilege of class instruction. I am deeply grateful to that noble woman, Mrs. Eddy, for having made the truth available to us. I feel that I owe my all to Christian Science, for it has been a stabilizing influence in my life, guiding me in the right, shielding me from the wrong, and establishing in me a desire to do His will, to prove myself worthy, through daily living, of the name "Christian Scientist."
