I had the privilege of coming...

I had the privilege of coming into Christian Science as a girl in my teens. My mother's dearest friend had been healed of a large abdominal tumor after the medical profession had almost lost hope of being able to save her life. I subsequently learned that she was healed of extremely weak eyesight at the same time. A couple of years later, when I visited her home, she showed me a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy and said that the book taught one to heal as Jesus healed. I realized that this was the most precious ability one could have and soon bought myself a copy of the book.

My mother paid no attention to my steady attendance at the Christian Science church services held in our community. But one day she learned from a neighbor that I had testified about a healing of a severe toothache which I had experienced. My testifying annoyed my family greatly. My copy of Science and Health was taken away, and I was forbidden further association with Christian Science. Not until after my marriage was I able to continue my study of it.
