It is now about three and a half...

It is now about three and a half years since I came upon a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. Although it was very difficult to understand at first, I knew from the beginning that this was the truth I always had been looking for. It was a difficult way. There was so much wrong thinking to be thrown to the winds that understanding came very slowly. But what I soon understood was that it is necessary that we demonstrate in our daily life all we understand and that we must overcome our fear of sickness, sin, and death through our experiences.

As a result of the application of Christian Science I have had many healings in my family, and therefore I am deeply grateful. One of the first healings my elder daughter had took place two years or so ago. One day she had a sore throat and was rather feverish. All the day I held to the truth that as a child of God, as God's reflection, man cannot have anything that is not Godlike, and I told her so.

By the evening, however, she still had the fever, and that made me a little fearful. So I rang up a practitioner. She said she would give the child treatment, and she also advised me to read my daughter passages from our textbook, Science and Health. Well, I was willing to do so, but I did not believe the child would understand anything of the reading. To my astonishment she asked me, when I had read her some passages, to repeat one of these twice because, she said, she liked it so much. After this she soon fell quietly asleep, and the next morning she was completely healed.
