Ten years ago I became an earnest student of Science

Ten years ago I became an earnest student of Science. Although I attended the Christian Science Sunday School and had numerous physical healings through prayer, I did not embrace its teachings until I left home for college. At that time I was taking daily medication for a thyroid condition. I was lonely, and confused about my future. One day in our college chapel I humbly asked God for His direction. The answer came strongly: "This is the way, walk ye in it" (Isa. 30:21). Shortly after, I attended Sunday services in a Church of Christ, Scientist, near the campus. I felt completely in God's love, and knew Christian Science held the answer for my mental confusion. I became active in the Christian Science college organization and delved into Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and the other writings of Mary Baker Eddy.

During this period of wonderful spiritual growth, I was healed instantly when an old gas oven exploded in my face, causing much pain. The truths of "the scientific statement of being," especially "All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all" (Science and Health, p. 468), quickly defeated the fear of disfigurement. The pain vanished. When I washed my face, the skin was perfectly clear, with no sign of burn. Only my eyelashes were slightly singed. My friends were relieved and somewhat amazed that I was unharmed. This healing gave my newfound understanding of Christ-healing great impetus.
