I am very grateful for the many blessings Christian Science has bestowed upon me. I have been raised in Christian Science and have had healings all through my experience, and I can feel my spiritual strength growing daily.

One day about five years ago I was the only one at home. As I was walking down the basement steps, I slipped and fell. When I landed at the bottom, there was a sharp pain in my arm. For an instant I was frightened, but then I immediately blocked out all error of belief of a fall and injury with thoughts of God. I felt my arm ease as I was bathed in the light of Truth.

I called my father, who is not a Christian Scientist, and he instructed me to go to a hospital. When I arrived and was waiting for X rays, I worked with the idea that man is the reflection of God and God is perfect, therefore man is perfect. When the X rays were completed, I was told that I would have to wait several hours for a specialist, because my arm was severely broken in several places.
