It is indeed a great privilege to testily to the healing power of Christian Science. I can truthfully say that until I took up the study of it I never knew a well day and had very few really happy ones.

My first healing in Science was of the necessity for wearing eyeglasses. This healing came about through my reading of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.

The second healing was of a so-called incurable skin disease which had been on my face from the time of my birth. When I was a child my mother bought many different kinds of washes and salves for this condition, but they were of no avail. A short time after I began to read Science and Health the disease was so aggravated that it became an unsightly condition of running sores. My friends all predicted that I would have scars on my face for life. Then it was that I asked a friend for my first Christian Science treatment. In less than two weeks there was not a trace of this discordant condition remaining. My gratitude for these physical healings knows no bounds, but it is much greater for having got my first glimpse of the truth about God and man. I felt myself being released from the old beliefs of false theology in which I had been reared.
