My first healing in Christian Science came about in the following manner. I had been a sickly child suffering from lung fever from the age of five months to seven years. When my daughter was six years old, we traveled about the state of California, where she performed in theatrical events. I carried about fifty dollars worth of medicine with me all the time. For about ten days I suffered great pain in breathing and was getting desperate. A neighbor stopped by to see me and said that if I would give her a nickel she would telephone a friend who was a Christian Science practitioner to come and see me, and that I could be healed. In about twenty-five minutes the practitioner came. She asked me if I believed in the existence of a Supreme Being. I told her yes. Later a friend came into the kitchen and saw all the medicine bottles empty and lined up on the windowsill. I had poured the medicine down the drain, as I knew that I was healed and wouldn't need it anymore. I suffered a relapse when I let a letter from a friend upset me. The practitioner explained that unhappiness was no part of God's being nor of man's being in His likeness. I learned how to love and was well again. This took place fifty-one years ago and I have been completely free.

I have had many helpful experiences that prove the Bible statement (Isa. 65:24), "And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear."
