I attended Christian Science Sunday School with a friend many years ago. However, I lost interest, and it was not until a few years ago that I found my way back to the fold.

Some time ago I began to suffer with a skin problem. I was not then a student of Christian Science, and I visited a physician who gave me a prescription, but this very uncomfortable disease continued to spread and at times affected my entire skin surface. We moved from an eastern state to the Midwest of America. Although my husband and I had joined an orthodox church and our four children had attended the Sunday School, I felt I would visit various denominations in the new town before I made a decision concerning the one I would attend permanently. I knew immediately that I wished to belong to the branch Church of Christ, Scientist. I attended there, for I found much love and joy, and it was as though I had come home again.

One night when I was in agony with the tormenting skin problem, I called a new friend, who was also a Christian Science practitioner. I asked her if she could please help me with prayer, and she said she would. She talked to me very lovingly and kindly. She knew three of our children were away and one son was serving in the Armed Forces. She asked if I was worried about them. She explained that I should release them all to God, that they were always being cared for by their creator. She said God's mother-love was not disturbed nor could I be. After leaving the telephone I walked to the window, and the most wonderful feeling of calm came over me. The skin problem vanished and has never returned. Ever since that time I have found Christian Science a great help to me.
