In a desire to help others to realize...

In a desire to help others to realize that a knowledge of the truth as taught in Christian Science heals, I am most happy to tell of some of the many healings that have come to me and my family during the last twenty years.

When I was twelve years old, our mother became interested in Science, and we children were taken out of a Protestant Sunday School and enrolled in a Christian Science Sunday School. However, after I grew up and married and was living in another state, I did not study or use Christian Science as I had been taught, although I attended church regularly. When our second son was coming, I realized I needed divine help, and I asked a practitioner for treatment. She explained to me that "only through radical reliance on Truth can scientific healing power be realized" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 167). Help was lovingly given, and when my son was born, I experienced little pain and there were no aftereffects. I seemed to be above the mortal sense of things while passing through this experience. This was the first real proof to me that God does heal if we but trust in Him. I realized that I had never been away from God's all-protecting care, even though for a time I had not been studying as diligently as I should have.
