For many years I received medical care for a hemorrhaging colon, considered incurable. I was told that if severe pain developed, surgery would be necessary. This verdict hung over me wherever I went.

While I was out of town, visiting a friend who was a Christian Scientist, the pain developed so severely I could not stand up straight, and I became frightened. My friend calmly assured me I would be all right and able to drive home. She had some errands to do and recommended I relax and read her books. This I did, not because I expected a healing but because I was curious to know what Christian Science was all about. I read a few pages of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and the Manual of The Mother Church by Mary Baker Eddy; I pondered the Tenets and was much inspired. I then opened the Christian Science Hymnal at random to No. 154. The last verse reads:

Testimony of Healing
