Christian Science has been my only physician for many...

Christian Science has been my only physician for many years. I became interested in this Science after being saved from undergoing a surgical operation. The healing has been permanent. At that time a practitioner was called, and during our conversation she told me that Christian Science teaches that God is Principle. I have always been grateful that she was led to tell me that. Through the years it has been a great help to me in the study of Christian Science. I am sure I could not have accepted any other definition of God at that time.

Before coming into Christian Science I used to be subject to severe headaches; these are now a thing of the past. Many inharmonious conditions have been met through the application of this truth. I am increasingly grateful for the understanding that wherever we go, God, Principle, is with us. One night, when I was traveling across the United States, I was troubled with a very sore throat. I knew that this must be overcome. A passage from the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, came to me (p. 393): "Have no fear that matter can ache, swell, and be inflamed as the result of a law of any kind." I held firmly to this thought, and the next morning I was free from that trouble. Again, I was entirely free from seasickness during the passage across the Atlantic from New York to England, because of understanding the truth contained in the ninety-third Psalm, "The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea."
