I was brought up in another religion

I was brought up in another religion. When I was sixteen my dad, who was just learning about Christian Science, asked me if I would like to go to church with him. I said, "Why not?" This happened to be a low time in my life, and all I can say is that Christian Science saved me. I had been doing badly in school, was frequently absent, and was rebellious at home. I also went out with the "wrong" kind of people—particularly a boyfriend. (He was very jealous and would beat me up for no reason.) As I learned more about Science, I knew these relationships were not right and something had to be done; I had lived with fear too long. So I called a Christian Science practitioner and explained the situation—that I was afraid to leave this boy because I thought he would beat me or might even kill me. The practitioner agreed to help and told me not to fear. When I told this young man that our relationship was over, all he did was cry. But the mesmerism was broken. We were both free. I felt so blessed, and I knew then that Christian Science could heal anything. Nothing is impossible to God, that's for sure!

I was also healed of intermittent drinking and of smoking marijuana occasionally. Constipation, food poisoning, a back difficulty, and menstrual pains were all healed through prayer in Christian Science. I have learned that we do not have to be sufferers of any kind, because we're not under any material so-called laws.

We'd love to hear from you!
