At one time, because of a spinal injury, I had to resign my teaching position because I was able to be up only two hours at a stretch. I had consulted many doctors, was under various kinds of medical treatment, and wore a brace. I also read literature of different religions, diligently searched the Scriptures, and prayed for a healing. On my desk I kept a copy of this statement of Christ Jesus' (Matt. 7:7): "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."

Then, one day, a guest in my house, seeing my great need, offered me the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and I accepted. As I began to read this book, I prayed to have an open mind. (I was no longer taking medicine, but I was having treatment from chiropractors.) While I read, it was as if I were bathed in light. This sense was with me for weeks! I felt love for everyone and felt that everyone loved me. In a week's time, I took off the corset brace. Although initially there was a struggle, I knew I could trust God completely for healing. Mrs. Eddy writes on page 167 of Science and Health, "Only through radical reliance on Truth can scientific healing power be realized."
