It is with deep gratitude that I recount some of the healings that have come to me and my family through the study and application of Christian Science.

One of these healings occurred when I was a very young student. This healing awakened me to the fact that only the spiritual understanding of God confers healing. Our son, who was at the time a teen-age boy, was taken to a hospital for an emergency operation for appendicitis. My husband was not interested at that time in Christian Science and was persuaded that an operation was necessary. However, I was not so persuaded, and I called on a practitioner for help. She prayerfully worked for me until all fear for the boy's well-being was completely erased from my thought. When I visited him at the hospital later that day, I was entirely free from a false sense of responsibility, for I realized that God was present and that all was well.

The next morning I went to the home of this practitioner, and my husband went to the hospital to be with our son during the operation. Upon my husband's arrival the boy told him that he did not need an operation. Neither my husband nor the doctor was easily persuaded; however, the boy insisted, and the doctor finally consented to repeat tests that had been given the previous day to determine the lad's condition. These tests clearly indicated his condition to be normal, and later that day he returned home. This healing took place over fifteen years ago, and it has been permanent.
