My first introduction to Christian Science...

My first introduction to Christian Science came many years ago when an older sister was healed of tuberculosis of the lungs through the application of Christian Science after physicians could do no more for her. Our family had been prejudiced against what it mistakenly considered Christian Science to be, and we did not understand how this healing had come about. However, we realized that something very wonderful had taken place.

Some years later, when the symptoms of the same disease were manifested in my own experience and I became extremely thin, I asked for help in Christian Science. Through the loving guidance and treatment of a practitioner, I was completely freed from this condition. This healing occurred about twenty-five years ago.

A few years later I accidentally placed one foot in scalding water. A practitioner was called immediately, and the intense suffering was completely overcome in about half an hour. For some time, however, I could not wear hose or set my foot on the floor. During this time the foot turned black. I was filled with fear, because the thought kept presenting itself to me that I might lose my foot.
