I shall always be grateful to...

I shall always be grateful to the dear person who, during my childhood, gave my sister a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. This new book aroused in me a feeling that this was a religion that was different. My interest in the church of my parents' choice had been lukewarm. Some years later when my parents decided to attend a Church of Christ, Scientist, I was very much pleased, because I felt that here was something that was practical.

My first healing took place when I still knew very little about Christian Science. I had been suffering for several days from inflammation of the eyes, and my mother, being very fearful, had said that if there was no improvement in the morning I would have to see a doctor.

When there was no evidence of any change the next morning, I asked her to let me call a practitioner. With her consent I immediateiy asked for help, and the healing took place in a couple of hours. This new way of treating human ills seemed wonderful to me. Until that time visits to the medicine cabinet and the family doctor had been frequent and regular.
