My first experience in Christian Science took place when I was a young woman working in a very small print shop. My hand was caught in a hand-fed letterpress. The appearance of the hand was alarming. Although I did not know it, my employer was a Christian Scientist. He quieted my fear and took me home to his wife, who had formerly been a registered medical nurse. She merely cleaned and wrapped the hand and assured me that all was well. To my great surprise I was soon free from pain and suffered no loss of activity. It was several years before I realized that this was my first Christian Science healing, and that it had been brought about by the prompt rejection by my employer and his wife of the error that man can suffer injury.

I have always been especially grateful for a healing of impetigo on the faces of my young children. The disease completely disappeared after about two weeks as the result of treatment given by a Christian Science practitioner. There has never been a return.

Through an improved concept of God's government, gained through the study of Christian Science, our family has experienced healings of so-called children's diseases, severe asthma attacks, constipation, broken bones, and inharmonious relationships. After an automobile accident I was once unable to walk and asked for treatment from a Christian Science practitioner. Later, a medical examination required for insurance purposes showed that two breaks had been properly set.
