Since very early childhood Christian Science...

Since very early childhood Christian Science has been my only physician and now our family is enjoying the many blessings that are inevitable when this very practical religion is properly applied. The physical healings and instances of progress in my experience are far too numerous to set forth here. I am humbly grateful for every proof of God's infinite love and tender care.

A few years ago, when I went to a dentist to have my teeth cleaned, I was informed that I had pyorrhea in an advanced stage and was advised to see a specialist for treatment at once. At first I was filled with fear. Then the following statement from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy came to me (pp. 476, 477): "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God's own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick."

I worked not only to see myself as "the perfect man," but also to see my family, friends, and associates as complete, lovely, and absolutely perfect, in spite of any material evidence to the contrary. This was a joyous experience and one of much spiritual growth. Five months later, when I again went to have my teeth cleaned, they were pronounced sound and healthy. This healing has been permanent, and I am indeed grateful for one more proof of the healing power of Christian Science.
