I should like to express my sincere gratitude for the many blessings that I have received through the study and application of Christian Science. My first healing came through reading the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. For several years I had been in poor health. I had undergone a major operation and had been taken home from the hospital with the doctor's prediction that I could not possibly live more than two months.

Neither my husband nor I knew anything about Christian Science, but a friend of his sent him to a Christian Science Reading Room, and he borrowed a copy of Science and Health. It was left on a small table by my bed unopened until the evening before it was to be returned. I then felt compelled to read it.

I began reading the chapter entitled "Prayer" and became so interested that I lost all sense of pain, weakness, and time. I read all night, and when morning came I knew I was completely healed.
