Were I to attempt to catalog all the blessings and healings I have experienced through Christian Science, there would not be enough allotted space in any one periodical to contain my testimony. However, I would like to express gratitude for one healing not heretofore acknowledged publicly.

A few years ago some symptoms of a much publicized disease began to manifest themselves in my body. For about two years I prayed earnestly for a healing, and happily I was able to carry on all my church, home, and other activities. But the symptoms did not abate.

Then in the spring of 1963, I was elected Second Reader of our branch church. I accepted this new activity joyfully, but suddenly the physical condition became greatly aggravated and painful, and alarming symptoms appeared. I turned wholeheartedly to God and asked, "Where do we go now, Father?" Of course, the answer came to go forward! The question from Deuteronomy came to me (10:12): "What doth the Lord thy God require of thee?" Well, I knew my own answer to that. He required that I love Him, follow His guidance, obey His commandments, and be about His business.
