I have long felt the desire to write my testimony of the healing efficacy of Christian Science. My first healing was of a skin eruption which covered half of my face and neck. I tried all the remedies anyone told me about. A doctor prescribed every remedy he knew of, but the condition did not improve, and at last he recommended that I try Christian Science.

I had believed in the power of prayer since a child, but knew nothing about the teachings of this Science. About this time I met a Christian Scientist, and after his explanation of Science I made an appointment with a practitioner and told her my problem. When I left her home all thought of the condition was erased from my mind. About three days later, while washing my face, I recalled having had the skin condition, but upon examination could find no trace of it.

I regret to say that I did not take up the study of Science at that time, though I gladly accepted the healing. About ten years later I fell on an icy sidewalk and broke my ankle. When I was brought home I immediately asked my mother to telephone to a Christian Science practitioner. Help was lovingly given, and although the ankle was set by a doctor I experienced no pain at any time. As soon as I was able to walk I started attending a Christian Science church and studying the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy.
