I heard of Christian Science whilst on holiday

I heard of Christian Science whilst on holiday. On my return I purchased a copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. I had no idea that in this textbook I should find the truth I had been searching for since my teens, but my first reaction after reading the first paragraph was, "At last I have found it!"

For two days and part of the nights I read the book constantly. To my great joy I found myself healed of a physical difficulty medically known, I believe, as a prolapse. Before my healing through reading Science and Health I had been in constant pain for ten years and unable to carry heavy things. I had had every medical treatment possible. I was wearing a supportive garment and had been told a plaster cast would be necessary, but this dread did not of course take place, for I was now well.

Sometime later I was sitting in my business office one morning when I began to panic for no particular reason. The fear was so great that I opened Science and Health at random and virtually shouted each word that I read. I read for almost an hour, then was interrupted by a client and forgot the whole thing. When I arrived home that evening, my daughter related an incident that had arisen while she and others were out riding; they had been protected in a most wonderful way from what could have been a serious situation (the others involved thought that a miracle had taken place). I knew then I had been forewarned and that the truths in Science and Health had met the need.
