For fifteen years I suffered from...

For fifteen years I suffered from arthritis. Walking was difficult, and I was in constant pain. Many physicians and chiropractors had tried to help me, but I was told that I would eventually be confined to a wheel chair. One day a neighbor telephoned and said that he had read that a woman had been healed of arthritis through Christian Science. I thanked him and then forgot all about his call.

A year later found me much worse, and I decided then and there to do something about it. I telephoned an acquaintance whom I knew to be a student of Christian Science and expressed my desire to obtain help. She most lovingly told me of the practitioners who are listed in The Christian Science Journal. One was chosen, and prayerful work was started at once.

The practitioner asked me to read Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I obtained this textbook and began at once to read it. It seemed so wonderful to me that I could hardly put it down. That night I slept well for the first time in two weeks. The next morning I got out of bed and walked across the room before I remembered the events of the day before. I shouted for joy when I realized that I had walked with freedom and without pain.
