When I became acquainted with Christian Science, I was a very unhappy person. My daughters had married and were living far away from us. My husband, who was a bank examiner, traveled a great deal, and my father, who had been living with us, had moved, having remarried. For me the world had come to an end. Christian Science illumined my life, opening a wide horizon before me, demolishing a great wall of materialism.
While en route to another city by bus, to be of help to a daughter who was expecting a baby, I sat beside a Christian Scientist. During the conversation that ensued, I was healed of a painful inflamed gum, caused by a broken tooth. The Scientist began telling me of the wonderful things Christian Science has done for mankind, healing the sick and solving problems. I was so absorbed in hearing how Christ Jesus healed and in learning that today there are spiritual healings like those he performed, I completely forgot the gum and the pain. When I got off the bus at my destination, there were no longer any points of the tooth in the gum, which was smooth, without pain, and completely healed.
