My expression of gratitude to God for Christ Jesus and for Mrs. Eddy is long overdue.

I had the privilege of being raised in Christian Science and of being surrounded by Scientists until I became a young adult. Then, after marrying a non-Scientist, I found myself having to practice and prove all the wonderful truths I could speak so glibly. This is when my real growth Spiritward began, and this growth has included some very convincing evidence of God's tender, loving care.

An especially memorable healing was one of migraine that had caused a great deal of suffering. One day at work I began to be afflicted with a headache. An aspect of the problem was an inability to focus, but I was determined to make the effort to read the Lesson-Sermon for the week. It was possible to take the time for this in our business day. I finished the first section of the Bible selections and had started on the selections from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. One phrase, "nothing is real but the right," stood out so clearly to me that I was healed in that instant and have not had a headache of any kind since that time. This was twenty years ago. The sentence from Science and Health reads in full (p. 228), "Heredity is a prolific subject for mortal belief to pin theories upon; but if we learn that nothing is real but the right, we shall have no dangerous inheritances, and fleshly ills will disappear."
