Like many students of Christian Science, I had my first healing...

Like many students of Christian Science, I had my first healing while I was reading the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, for the first time. The healing was so natural that initially I was not even aware of it. Then, after some days had gone by, it suddenly dawned on me that I was no longer bothered with an organic malfunction which had plagued me from childhood.

At that time I was a young mother with a baby son. One night I was wakened by the baby, who was having difficulty breathing. We did not have a telephone yet, and I did not know a Christian Science practitioner, so I gathered the little one into my arms and held him in an upright position for the rest of the night. When morning came, I propped the baby up in his cart with pillows and pushed the cart for several blocks to a Christian Science Reading Room. There a kind librarian recommended a Christian Science practitioner who lived nearby. She even telephoned the practitioner for me and made an appointment, so that I could take the baby to the practitioner's home for treatment.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
