The healing of my husband with the help of a Christian Science...

The healing of my husband with the help of a Christian Science practitioner in 1947 changed our whole lives. The doctors he had seen pronounced his heart condition fatal. In addition he was addicted to alcohol, gambling, smoking, and swearing. This healing, which has been permanent, is described in his testimony in The Christian Science Journal of September, 1963. I might add that glasses, which he had worn for many years, were put aside at that time too, and later, when past seventy years of age, he served as First Reader in a branch church for three years without using glasses.

Years before, on our return home from our first visit to the practitioner, my husband seemed to be better. However, he asked me to go out and get him some brandy, because he was afraid he would not be able to sleep without it. When I came back he had fallen asleep. As I stood looking at him and our two small sleeping children, a statement from a borrowed copy of the Christian Science textbook came into my thought (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 167): "It is not wise to take a halting and half-way position or to expect to work equally with Spirit and matter, Truth and error."
