I hope this testimony will bless someone who might feel discouraged when healing seems to come slowly. I have learned that such a time can be turned into one of continued spiritual growth.

During the summer of 1972 I began to experience soreness in the joints of my body. Soon the suffering became unbearable and my movements restricted, so I asked a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me. Fear that I would become completely disabled often kept me from thinking clearly, so I was very grateful for this dear practitioner who lovingly and faithfully prayed for me daily for several weeks. During this time, as the fear and suffering lessened, I began to feel the need to study and pray for myself, and I was encouraged to do this by the practitioner. She, in turn, continued to write to me. Her letters often directed me to just the verse from the Bible or the statement from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy that I needed.
