I did not take up the study of Christian Science for physical healing, although I was badly in need of it. I wanted most of all to know God, and it seemed to me, from what I had heard of this religion, that Christian Scientists used its teachings in their everyday affairs.

The first healing I had in Christian Science was of pain when hot grease was spilled over my hand. I repeated "the scientific statement of being," found on page 468 of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and the pain stopped instantly. I finished breakfast without my family's knowing of the experience.
