For fifteen years I had a growth on one side of my head, but I was never particularly troubled by it. In fact, I had come to accept it, although deep down I knew that I should deal with this problem through prayer in Christian Science.

About three years ago the growth became larger and uncomfortable. Twice I had prayerful help from a Christian Science practitioner whose work helped me realize that I needed to purify my thinking. I endeavored to do this, but only periodically.

Then, while on holiday that summer, I was again alerted to my need for healing, for not only was I experiencing discomfort in my head but also a similar growth had appeared on my elbow. Over the next few months I really strove to purify my thinking and to express more of God's love in my day-to-day life.
