Those of us who do not readily become disciples of Christ are brought around sooner or later through discipline. The Bible says (Hebr. 12:6), "For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth." Although I was raised in a Christian Science Sunday School, it wasn't until symptoms of a disease developed for which material medicine had no answer that I turned wholeheartedly to studying the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. After receiving treatment once from an experienced Christian Scientist, I carried on the prayerful work myself, as the fear had been dispelled. It was many months before all symptoms disappeared, but the healing was completed, and I was on my way, though slowly, to becoming a sincere student of this Science.

Years later, after I married and was raising a family, and trying to live Christian Science while learning it, membership in The Mother Church seemed to be a most desirable forward step, but it was difficult for me to give up the use of headache pills. I suffered periodic attacks of sick headaches. For months the application for membership lay around unsigned. Then one day during a particularly acute attack, I decided to take my stand and put into practice what I had been learning of the power of prayer to meet this situation.
