Before I became a student of Christian Science, I developed a severe cold. A dear friend of my parents brought me a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. Although I did not feel I understood much of it, the chapter entitled "Prayer" made a great impression on me. The opening sentence states (p. 1): "The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God,—a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love."

The family physician examined me and believed it was necessary for me to have ear surgery. However, after I entered the hospital, nothing was found to treat; I was released. I returned to my teaching position, and there were no more health problems. I had been healed through reading Science and Health. From that time I have relied fully on Christian Science, and God has become my source of guidance and protection.
