My gratitude for Christian Science is deep

My gratitude for Christian Science is deep. It has met all of our family's needs over a period of many years. I consider the inner peace and joy that the study of Christian Science gives one to be our greatest blessing. Some of the healings we have had include several types of influenza, measles, mumps, whooping cough, warts, athlete's foot, oak and ivy poisoning, impaired vision, grief over separation from a beloved member of our immediate family. Serious business problems have been solved. Some of these problems were met with the help of a Christian Science practitioner; others through our own prayerful efforts.

I had a remarkable healing a little over fifteen years ago. I do not know the name of the condition. I was in much pain and suffering, with the symptoms changing every day. It seemed every organ and the entire nervous system were affected. I was a physical and mental wreck. A consecrated practitioner brought quick relief to me through her prayer, each time she was called upon for help. During this time treatment was continued for a month at a time, with periods of going along between treatments with our own metaphysical work. My husband, who is also a Christian Scientist, read the Bible Lessons in the Christian Science Quarterly to me every night, together with an article from the Christian Science periodicals. The spiritual truths I heard read helped to sustain me during the following day. At times my husband became very discouraged as a permanent healing seemed elusive. One day when he gave in to tears, I tried to comfort him and told him that I would make this demonstration.
