Words can never express my gratitude for a healing which took place about two years ago. Since the age of ten months I had suffered from severe bronchial asthma. During my childhood days my parents tried many means of healing that medical science had to offer, but to no avail.

Later I became interested in Christian Science and soon began studying in earnest. Frequently when I suffered a severe attack of asthma, I requested treatment from a practitioner. Relief always came quickly, but not a complete healing. Then about five years ago it became my happy privilege to work for The Mother Church in Boston. Being faced with the problem of establishing a new home, I immediately knew that divine Love would go before me and prepare the right place for me.

Although I had expected to obtain an apartment immediately on arrival in Boston, I was led instead to take a room in the home of a Christian Scientist. This resulted not only in my having a wonderful home with her for about two years but also in a lasting friendship and many other blessings. My new friend helped me to realize that I was being held in bondage by many forms of limitation. For instance, moderate exercise had always left me gasping for breath, so when she suggested walking downtown, a distance of about one mile, I replied that that much exercise would bring on an attack of asthma.
