For many years I have been...

For many years I have been blessed by the teachings of Christian Science. The testimonies in the periodicals have been most helpful, and I should like to add mine, hoping that it will be helpful to others. Since I was reared in a medically minded family, in which there are several doctors, the way at times has not been easy, and the mists of mortal thinking have had to be cleared to let in the spiritual truth.

One of the first healings I experienced was that of influenza, or grippe, as it was called in those days. I had been subject to such attacks all my life and expected a bout with them each winter. A short time after I began the serious study of Christian Science, an attack occurred. I was taken by a friend to a practitioner, who talked to me for a few minutes; then we drove to the friend's farm.

After supper, which to my surprise I was able to eat, I went to bed on a sleeping porch that was very damp and cold. However, a sense of peace and trust in God came to me, and I went to sleep, leaving all in God's hands. The next morning I was entirely free, and I returned home with a heart full of gratitude.
