My first healing in Christian Science...

My first healing in Christian Science occurred when I was thirteen years old, and my testimony was published in a Sentinel in 1925. It was a case of tuberculosis, which was healed after the doctors had given me only a few weeks to live, saying one lung was completely gone and the other one partly gone.

Since then I have had many blessings and healings in Christian Science. When my son was three years old, he opened a can of lye and ate some of it, burning his mouth and face. I left him in distress and went to the telephone to call a practitioner. I told her what had happened, and her first words to me were (Mark 16:18), "'If they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them.'"

She promised to give the boy treatment, and I went back to him and washed the lye off his tongue, which was badly burned. He soon stopped crying. When lunch time came I fed him and then put him to bed for his nap. After he awakened, there was not the least sign of a burn inside or outside his mouth or on his face.
