I want to say how grateful I am to God for Christian Science and to explain how this revelation of Truth healed me. The healing took place over ten years ago.

This problem was never diagnosed, but it involved abdominal pain and swelling. At first, it was only a nuisance, coming on periodically. Each time, as the problem disabled me, I called a Christian Science practitioner to treat me through prayer. This always quieted the condition for the time being. However, the spells of pain began to dominate my experience until a threatening situation developed.

I was taken by ambulance to the Christian Science Benevolent Association, where I was beautifully and compassionately cared for. The dear practitioner, undismayed, continued to support me daily. I had many hours of the day to be alone with my thoughts. I determined to keep my thoughts focused on spiritual concepts of man and his Maker, so that the only activity taking place was an enlarged understanding of God and my place in His harmonious kingdom. I started with the belief of being born into a material situation and claimed instead my spiritual and eternal relationship with God as my Father and Mother. I recognized no material history in which to build up strong feelings of resentment or fear—feelings that could result in pain.
