Christian Science came to me...

Christian Science came to me many years ago through an aunt who had been healed of what was considered an incurable disease. At that time I was suffering from melancholia. The passing on of my mother when I was in my early teens and the responsibility of taking over her place in the home seemed to weigh heavily on my young shoulders. My aunt gave me a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I started to read it, but got no farther than the chapter on Prayer, which I read over and over again. The sentence that seemed to stand out most clearly was (p. 1), "Desire is prayer; and no loss can occur from trusting God with our desires, that they may be moulded and exalted before they take form in words and in deeds." I asked myself. What is it that I desire most of all? The answer came, Peace of mind, happiness, and security. As I studied, all my fears dropped away and the discordant conditions cleared up.

Through my further study a goiter disappeared. When this healing took place I do not know, but one day as I was combing my hair I noticed that my neck was perfectly normal. These healings were the result of study and of imbibing the spirit of Truth through the consecrated reading of the Bible and Science and Health.
