I never cease to be grateful for being able to live as a Christian Scientist

I never cease to be grateful for being able to live as a Christian Scientist. I have had instantaneous healings of measles, ringworm, flu, colds, a broken bone in my foot, and ivy poisoning. The applied laws of Christian Science have resulted in better physical coordination, improved ability to take tests, and loss of extreme shyness.

A double healing resulted when I was forced to cope with a character flaw, a wrong sense of ego. When I was in college, plantar warts started growing on the sole of one of my feet. Eventually the soles of both feet were covered. Not only was I embarrassed by the appearance, but walking became painful. Because I could hide the condition with my shoes, I never really tried to heal it through prayer in Christian Science. I stumbled along for several years until a different problem led to an interesting healing.

During my second year of teaching school all nontenured teachers were abruptly relocated due to an unexpected drop in enrollment. I was assigned fifty miles from my home to a reportedly dangerous school where I would be dealing entirely with remedial work. I felt as if the foundation of my life had slipped, as if I were being unjustly punished.
