Christian Science was in our family from my earliest years

Christian Science was in our family from my earliest years. I am grateful to my mother for instilling in me an abiding love and deep respect for Christian Science, which never left me even during the fifteen years I did not attend church. Eventually I could see that there was no other logical or satisfactory solution to the problems of life, and I found my way back to my true church home. Branch church membership has strengthened and supported me for many years now, and serving in various capacities has brought joy and great satisfaction into my life. As I gain clearer views of the magnitude of Christian Science, I stand in awe of Mrs. Eddy. The size of the job she tackled and brilliantly accomplished staggers one.

Among the numerous healings I've experienced are quick release from food poisoning without needing any recuperation period, incipient nervous breakdown, a serious knee injury, total helplessness because of a back condition, and a foot severely injured when a horse came down on it with his entire weight. (In this instance I was able to go dancing the following evening!) All the foregoing healings were accomplished through the scientific prayers of a Christian Science practitioner. My heart overflows with gratitude for all the selfless practitioners throughout the Field.
