Our first experience with Christian Science...

Our first experience with Christian Science healing occurred many years ago when our thirteen-year-old daughter became ill with rheumatic fever. During several weeks of medical treatment, she grew steadily worse. I then recalled a remarkable Christian Science healing of a neighbor which I had seen fifteen years before and decided to try it for our daughter.

Borrowing from a friend a copy of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, I took it home and began to read the chapter on Prayer. Very soon I felt lifted up, inspired. And I knew that what I was reading was the truth. For several hours I read to our daughter. At first, she seemed to be in considerable distress. But after listening to a page or two of the reading, she expressed real interest. Her facial expression and her whole attitude completely changed, and the pain disappeared.
