Christian Science came to me at a time of much unhappiness many years ago. I became a student, endeavoring to apply the spiritual truths in the Bible, and in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

When I have been faithful in holding steadfastly to my highest understanding of Christian Science, it has never failed me. In absolute conviction that the understanding of God as revealed in this divine Science is, through the power of the Christ, adequate to overcome all forms of discord, I would like to relate how I was freed from a painful physical condition.

I live alone and had always enjoyed being very active in my garden until some years ago when it became difficult to continue this activity. The physical condition was such that I became practically immobile. Neighbors had noticed and were greatly concerned, also my son and his wife were pressing me to seek medical aid. I was very reluctant to do this, as I had always adhered to the Christian Science standard of healing, which requires radical reliance on God.
