I was drawn to Christian Science mostly because the thought of healing others intrigued me. Little did I consider my own need of healing at that time of a bad back and "trick knee." The knee often gave way under strain and sometimes just in walking.

As the precepts of Christian Science were slowly assimilated, I endeavored to heal myself. One day while alone at home, I accidentally drove a screwdriver into my hand. Rather unsure of what to do, I went to the Bible, and Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy to find help. A few minutes of study brought about a stoppage of the pain and bleeding. I specifically denied that I was a mortal being—stupid, afraid, and injured.

In a few days the wound had healed, but there was no feeling or action in the middle finger of the hand. When I discussed the condition with a fellow church member, he recommended that I deal with the lie that nerves govern the body. This was done, and a complete healing resulted.
