I was troubled with bronchial asthma and taking pills every day for it when friends invited our family to a lecture on Christian Science. I knew I had found what I was seeking that day, because the lecturer's explanation of Science made sense to me. I was eager to know more about it.

After the lecture I told my husband that I was going to get rid of all the asthma pills, and I did so the following day. Medicine could offer me no cure for this condition, so I asked a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me. Through this help I noticed some improvement, but the physical healing was not apparent for almost nine years. At times fear and discouragement would try to creep in, making the condition seem aggressive. But I trusted in the power of Truth, and I expected healing. I did as much study as I could, sometimes getting up at 4 a.m. to study the Bible Lesson in the Christian Science Quarterly and to read the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by our Leader, Mrs. Eddy.
