More than forty years ago I received an instantaneous healing after reading the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. As a young woman I was not strong in health and suffered much of the time. Doctors were unable to agree upon a diagnosis, one of them saying that an operation was necessary. This I refused to have. It was then that a friend asked me if I would read the textbook. I agreed to do this, and the book was lovingly brought to me.

One day, when I was quite ill and discouraged, I asked that the book be brought to my bed. I opened it to the chapter entitled "Christian Science Practice" and began to read. I became so interested that I did not realize how fast the time had passed until my husband came home for dinner. It was then I knew that I was well. I told my husband that I had never felt better. As I had read, I had acknowledged the truths of the statements contained in the book. Later when I was visiting a Christian Science practitioner, she explained that my healing was the result of my receptivity to the Christ, Truth. I began to understand the words of the Bible and to apply them in my daily life.
