As a child I so yearned to obey...

As a child I so yearned to obey the commands of Jesus that I wept when my father, an orthodox minister, said that he could not heal the sick. For many years I struggled unsuccessfully to conquer fear, lack, and sin through human will and to achieve some control over my temper and other undesirable traits of character. At last, at a time when I was completely confused and discouraged over my prospects for health, financial security, and a happy home life, I witnessed the instantaneous healing through Christian Science of a friend who had a severe attack of bursitis. Upon inquiring about her healing I was given a copy of The Christian Science Journal. The testimonies of healing filled me with joy and hope. I knew I had found that for which I had always longed, and I turned wholeheartedly to the study of this wonderful revelation.

Since that time I have used no material remedies, but have relied solely on God through Christian Science. Early in my reading of the textbook. Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I was healed of the need of wearing glasses, which I had been told I must always wear, and also of what doctors and my parents had considered a hereditary condition that caused much pain and trouble in digestion. Just through my reading, reasoning, and holding to the precious truth, cuts, colds, and other ailments were healed instantaneously.
