When I was a schoolgirl, I...

When I was a schoolgirl, I came home one day with severe pains in my back. I remembered that I had a paper on which a friend had copied for me "the scientific statement of being" from page 468 of Science and Health In Mrs. Eddy. She had recommended that I memorize it. Knowing that she had been healed in Christian Science, I wondered if her religion could help me. I tried to understand what the statement really meant. As I thought about each sentence, including the one which says, "Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error," some revelation of the truth must have unfolded to me, for when I had finished I was entirely free from pain.

I was so happy and grateful that I felt I must know more of what Science teaches of God. I began going to a Christian Science Sunday School; this was a great help to me. After a few years I married a student of Christian Science, and together throughout the years we have proved many times the truths contained in "the scientific statement of being."

Some of the healings we experienced in the family were those of so-called children's diseases, eve and throat troubles, blood poisoning, nosebleed, burns, a tendency to take cold, lumbago, hemorrhoids, gallstones, appendicitis, and arthritic pains. Business problems were also solved. I am very grateful for these healings, some of which resulted from our own prayers and some from the help of a practitioner.
