Christian Science was presented to me over twenty years ago, and its healing efficacy has been proved to me many times over.

I was a professional singer for eighteen years. One evening I went to work with what would probably be considered severe laryngitis after "losing my voice" from cheering at a football game. I was unable to find another singer to fill in for me. But instead of becoming fearful or depressed, I recognized that God was All and that I was really His expression. I rejoiced over my true perfection as God's child. A friend who is a Christian Scientist happened to be there when I arrived for work, and he began praying too! When the music started I began to sing (or squeak if you will) as best I could. Then, after singing several notes, I felt an adjustment take place in my throat, and my voice was as free as it had ever been. I continued to sing the rest of the evening.

Once I suffered from bladder trouble. Around this same time I had decided to undertake a project of reading all of Mrs. Eddy's writings and noting every statement dealing with the word "demonstration." The physical condition became extremely painful; I was unable to sleep and barely able to sit still. But I held adamantly to the conviction that God would heal me.
