It is more than forty years since Christian Science was first brought to my attention. I accepted it gladly because it appealed to me as a practical religion, something that I had been looking for all my life and had not been able to find.

Although I did not come into Christian Science for physical healing, I was healed of a so-called incurable disease which physicians had told me I would never be free from. This healing came about through my reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and the healing has been permanent. Since that time Christian Science has been the only means of healing in our family of five. I have been healed of a sprained ankle, blood poisoning, colds, severe pain, headaches, constipation of many years' standing, of cuts and bruises resulting from an accident, of sorrow when my mother passed on, and of other discordant conditions. Lost articles have been found.

Our three children were brought up without medicine or doctors, except for the required physical examinations at school. They were wonderfully healed or protected through so-called contagious diseases: chicken pox, mumps, whooping cough, measles, and other ailments. Their every need has been met, mostly through our own work, but occasionally with the help of a practitioner.
