When a dear friend acquainted me with Christian Science, I didn't know how much joy, harmony, and happiness would come into our home as a result. Our entire attitude toward life was changed. I had only been studying the Bible, together with Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, a short time when I experienced a wonderful healing, a healing that remains unforgettable.

One day quite suddenly I experienced severe abdominal pain. There were other symptoms, including high fever, and I could not hold food down. I became depressed and couldn't sleep. My husband, who like me had been studying Christian Science only a short while, prayed the best he could for me. When there seemed to be no improvement, we asked a Christian Science practitioner for help through prayer.

Then a relative unexpectedly arrived for a visit. When she saw my condition, she said, "I'm going to call a doctor at once." She was so insistent that we decided to call the doctor who had helped our family before we had come into Christian Science. My husband called from the nearest telephone booth and asked him to come. When the doctor arrived he examined me and immediately ordered my admission to the hospital, since he considered my life to be in danger.
