"To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." So writes our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, in the Preface to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. vii). It was indeed a day "big with blessings" for me when I first heard about Christian Science. It was presented to me by a neighbor who loaned me her copy of Science and Health at a time when I was in great need. I was suffering from high blood pressure, angina, gallbladder trouble, and other ills.

I had not finished the chapter on Prayer before I realized that this was the religion I had been seeking all my life. I was so enthusiastic that I attended a few Wednesday evening testimony meetings and a Sunday morning service to learn more about this religion. After I had finished reading the book, I realized that I had been healed of the high blood pressure and the angina. I was able to walk for miles and to do chores I had been unable to do before.

With the help of a consecrated practitioner I was healed of the gallbladder trouble in one treatment. This was remarkable to me at that time, because in former attacks, which usually lasted from one to three weeks, I had to have injections of morphine to ease the pain. These healings have all been permanent.
