With a heart full of gratitude I write this testimony of healing through Christian Science. During my term of office as Second Reader in a Christian Science Society, I awoke one Monday and found that my mouth was distorted and that I was unable to speak properly.

I asked my husband to phone a very sincere Christian Science student for help through prayer. I began to improve straightaway, so much so that the same evening I was able to fulfill my duties at a Christian Science Reading Room. The following evening we had been invited out to dinner, and, although the healing was not yet complete, I was able to go.

Mrs. Eddy says in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health (p. 411), "Disease is always induced by a false sense mentally entertained, not destroyed." In this instance I realized that the "false sense" I had been entertaining was resentment over a remark passed on the previous Saturday about my reading. When this resentment was uncovered and thoroughly destroyed by divine Love through the treatment given, my mouth and speech became normal; and within three weeks I was back at my post as Second Reader.
