All my life I have relied on God for healing...

All my life I have relied on God for healing and guidance. I am grateful for the Christian Science practitioners who have prayed for me so unselfishly, and for my mother, whose prayers have healed me and whose example has helped me grow in my understanding and practice of this religion.

Physical healings I have had include the elimination of a cluster of warts and of severe colds. I felt no bad effects when my arm passed through a clothes wringer; and I have been healed of an injury to my back from a fall. After I overcame resentment toward someone, I was healed of constipation.

When I was twelve years old, I had a great loss of hair after an illness. A practitioner had been praying for me, for several weeks. A beautician told my mother my hair was dead and would all come out. Upon hearing this, my mother voiced the emphatic declaration, "We make no concession to mortal opinions!" This broke the mesmerism, and I had quick restoration, with new hair growth.
