Christian Science has transformed...

Christian Science has transformed my life from one of self-centeredness, self-consciousness, limited outlook, and hampered ability to one of fullness, happiness, and usefulness. There have been many healings along the way. One in particular I should like to share now.

In 1959 I became ill with pneumonia and pleurisy. A Christian Science practitioner was called, and the extreme pain lessened and was soon reduced to discomfort. A number of other conditions disappeared or were relieved, such as swelling in the feet and ankles. However, although I was able in general to take care of myself, I was not able to breathe freely or to lie down in bed, and no organ seemed to be functioning properly.

There was much mental darkness and an inability to work prayerfully in Christian Science. One day when I was reaching out more than ever before for light to see my way out of this mental prison, the answer came in words spoken by my teacher of Christian Science at one association meeting, "Don't be afraid of anything!" These words brought my first real feeling of conviction and comfort, and I said them over and over again for the rest of the day.
