My next-door neighbor had her house up for sale but was unable to sell it. Later, after she had introduced me to Christian Science, we both knew she had remained in the house for a purpose.

During this time, and for several years prior, I had suffered from a functional disorder for which every remedy, including surgery, had been tried to no avail. This neighbor had loaned me Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I had read it somewhat but could not seem to understand it. One day after I had returned home from one of my numerous hospital stays, she visited me and recommended that I have treatment from a Christian Science practitioner. When I asked if she thought this would help, she replied, "Yes" and left. For two days the struggle with fear and self continued until I thought, "What do you have to lose?" A practitioner was called, and she spent an hour with me. She agreed to treat me through prayer. Within a few hours release and healing came. A great wave of love and warmth washed over me, and I felt like a new woman.
