I did not take up the study of Christian Science for physical healing. but because I found life very empty. As I was living near a Christian Science church, I attended a Wednesday evening testimony meeting. The joy and assurance expressed in the testimonies greatly impressed me. I remember thinking. If Christian Science can do so much for them, it can do it for me too.

My husband and I moved a great deal at that time, but on each occasion I found that our home was close to a Christian Science church, where I could attend. Soon the desire for church membership came; but I learned that I must be healed of smoking before I could become a member, since smoking is not in accord with Christian Science. One day I was reading in the Sentinel a testimony by a man who had been healed of smoking through applying the statement, "Resist evil— error of every sort—and it will flee from you" (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 406). I was instantaneously healed. Membership in a branch church and The Mother Church followed, and later I received class instruction.

We have had many healings in our home. False traits of character have been eliminated, fear of driving an automobile has been overcome, a false sense of motherhood has been corrected, and financial problems have been solved. Constipation of long standing, a sprained ankle, bee stings, yellow jaundice, headaches, and seven-year itch have been healed. The disease last mentioned was quickly overcome when resentment was destroyed.
