Many years ago I was healed by Christian Science of kidney trouble and colitis after spending weeks in a hospital under a famous specialist's care. When I left the hospital the doctor told me it would be wise to accept the fact that I must always live on a rigid diet. This was most discouraging, as I had lost many pounds and was too weak to walk. Christian Science was called to my attention, and my study of it began with the beautiful and inspiring Lesson-Sermon on "Doctrine of Atonement" in the Christian Science Quarterly. The realization that Life is God and that the real man is not governed by material sense was most enlightening to me.

Two weeks after treatment was begun in Christian Science I threw away all my medicines and played several sets of strenuous tennis. The symptoms of the diseases disappeared, and a year later there was a harmonious childbirth. I am grateful for an instantaneous healing of smoking which occurred when I gave up using will power and prayed to be healed.

The Bible says (Isa. 40:31), "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." This verse has often been my comfort and guide. It enabled me to turn aside from a false sense of personal responsibility and fatigue and to earn what was needed for myself and two daughters. At the time, we were living in a city where we knew few people. As I had never before worked, I had no concrete idea what to do, but I prayed to be shown the way. Then an acquaintance asked me to sell some beautiful designs she had made. I took them to a wallpaper company, which immediately purchased one. I rejoiced greatly, and soon other opportunities to sell were presented.
