I am very grateful to God for Christ Jesus and for Mary Baker Eddy, as well as for the opportunity of giving this testimony.

Christian Science appealed to me as a good guide for living, but I would not at first accept it as a healing system. A bone in my foot had been out of place for some years. This had resulted in displacement of ligaments and muscles and had caused such strain and pain that I could hardly walk. I went to a doctor, but he could not do anything for me; so I went to a chiropractor. After six months of intensive manipulation the chiropractor managed to make the bone, ligaments, and muscles stay in place for about a year.

At the end of that time the ligaments slipped out of place again, and the condition became much worse. Then I had a battle. It was as if an argument between two voices went on in my mind all day. One voice said, "You had better try Christian Science." The other voice said, "Christian Science may be all right for mental diseases, but it could not possibly heal bones, ligaments, and muscles." The first voice replied: "What do you mean? You say God is all-power and immediately limit Him to mental diseases. He is all-power or He is not all-power."
