It has long been a sincere desire of mine to send a testimony about a quick healing I experienced through the application of the truths Mrs. Eddy gives us in the textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.

For thirty-seven years we have experienced through God's love and protection many wonderful healings such as those of heart trouble, severe headaches, and many more than I can recount. One that stands out above all others occurred about nine years ago.

One night around eleven thirty I was awakened with extreme pain in my side. This was so severe that it was difficult to stand or lie down, and sitting was like sitting on a knife. I tried to hold to the truth, as we are taught, but could not for long. I called to my husband, a sincere student of Christian Science, and he telephoned a Christian Science practitioner, who had helped us many times. The practitioner prayed for me, and after a short while I was able to lie down. I fell asleep around five in the morning and at about ten o'clock arose completely free from all pain. It was as if I had had a bad dream. There has never been a return of the problem.
