Soon after I began studying Christian Science, I was healed of a goiter through the help of a Christian Science practitioner. I was greatly impressed with this wonderful religion which had healed me so quickly. However, I was not then ready to give up my membership in the orthodox church of which my family had been members for many years. So I tried to hold to both religions.

About a year after this first healing, my husband and I moved to a small town where there were no Christian Scientists. For about two years I attended my former church regularly, but I also spent time each day studying Christian Science.

Shortly after I had a tooth removed, a serious bone infection resulted. I yielded to the insistence of a member of my family to see a specialist in a nearby city. He told me that I would need to have an operation within four or five days and possibly would require a series of operations which would take a year or more, adding that I would probably never have the normal use of my jaws again.
