Christian Science was presented...

Christian Science was presented to me through a stranger who, in a conversation, told me it would heal me. I had never heard of it before. I asked what it was, and was told that Christian Scientists believe in a God who is Love, a God who is good. I knew as soon as those words were spoken that that was the God I wanted to believe in. This dear one made me a gift of the Bible, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and the Christian Science Quarterly, and told me to read. That was all that was told me. I had not mentioned to my new friend that I had not been able to read for several years because of defective eyesight. But I took the copy of Science and Health, a small edition, and sat down one morning at eight-thirty to read. I could not see a word. But I sat there and said, "God is good; God is Love; and I can see nothing but good, for my God is good." Then I began with my finger to pick out the words "God," "good," "Love." I do not think it was more than fifteen minutes before I was reading every word. When I looked at the clock, it was five-thirty in the afternoon. I had been reading for nine hours. I then realized that I was healed. I said aloud, "My sight is indeed spiritual." I got up and threw out a basket of medicine.

In a short time I was healed of a goiter by repeating "the scientific statement of being" (Science and Health, p. 468). I was also healed of constipation, indigestion, sick headaches, and a great sense of weakness; many other ailments disappeared through the reading of Science and Health. Christian Science has been my only physician for twenty years.
