In the hope that it may encourage others to find their true identity it is a great privilege to be able to add my testimony to the many others that I have enjoyed. Christian Science was brought into my experience about fifty years ago. A dear sister was healed of tuberculosis. She sent my mother a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, which I read haphazardly a few times. I knew that it was the only religion I could embrace, but I seemed unwilling to follow its teachings closely. When a problem presented itself, I would call a Christian Science practitioner and receive help; then I carried on until the next need arose.

After I married and had children, I turned more and more to Christian Science for its healing help. Since we lived where I could not get to church and my husband was not interested in Science, I had many opportunities to pray for myself. One outstanding healing was that of my daughter when she was about fourteen months old. A rash appeared all over her body, and a high fever was apparent. My husband was not at home, and I became very fearful as she tossed and fretted and was unable to sleep.

I picked up my Bible and opened it to the verse (Ps. 34:22): "The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate." I then started to read the chapter from Science and Health entitled "Prayer." My thought was arrested when I reached the paragraph which begins (p. 14): "Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual,—neither in nor of matter,—and the body will then utter no complaints. If suffering from a belief in sickness, you will find yourself suddenly well." I went over this many times before realizing that my child was sleeping comfortably and the rash was disappearing. By morning she was well and happy. There were many more instances of healings of so-called children's disease:, as well as the overcoming of migraine, colds, undesirable traits of character in myself, and a great sense of lack.
