My introduction to Christian Science...

My introduction to Christian Science came through a friend who told me of the truths that had healed her of grief when her child passed on. As I listened I felt that I had always believed these truths, and with my thought inspired by her explanations I desired to know more about Christian Science. At that time I was suffering from a physical disorder which the doctors had diagnosed as kidney and bladder trouble. Although the doctors said that I needed continued medical treatment, I stopped having it almost immediately.

I started to attend the Sunday services and Wednesday testimony meetings in a Church of Christ, Scientist, and enrolled our little daughter in the Sunday School. There she learned much and loved the new teachings. My husband also began to study Christian Science. He was suffering from an ulcerated stomach, which had distressed him for many years. He had received hospital care for the condition, but this brought only temporary relief.

As we studied the Bible and Mrs. Eddy's works while having the help of a practitioner a great deal of erroneous thinking was uncovered. We were willing to see the errors as unreal, and as they were cast out of our thought the truths we were learning replaced them. We began to recognize God as the only cause and man as created in the image and likeness of God. Both my husband and I were completely healed of our physical ailments. This was more than twenty years ago.
