My first healing in Christian Science...

My first healing in Christian Science occurred many years ago. I had begun the study of Christian Science, daily going to the Reading Room to read.

One day, while studying, I became ill and told the librarian I did not think I could get home. She told me she would send me home in a limousine and, knowing I had not been studying long, asked me if I wanted a doctor or a practitioner to be called. I told her I thought I would take my stand now and rely on Christian Science and have a practitioner. She handed me The Christian Science Journal, and I chose a name for her to call.

When I reached the house, I went to bed. When the practitioner came, she put Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy in my hand, telling me to read anywhere while she gave me a treatment. Before leaving, she asked me to call her that evening. In the meantime my husband came home and did not like it when I told him I had had a practitioner. But when I told him she wanted me to call her and I could not get up, he insisted I call her and helped me to the telephone.
