I Became interested in Christian Science about forty-five years ago. At the time I was very ill with asthma. I had been teaching in the public schools for several years but was thinking about resigning at the end of the school year, as I felt unable to continue. Much time and money had been spent on physicians and medicines, yet, like the woman in the Bible, I "was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse" (Mark 5:26).

One day a friend urged me to have prayerful help from a Christian Science practitioner. She drove me to a practitioner's office. The practitioner was busy with another patient but gave me an appointment for the next day. Nevertheless, in that brief conversation with the practitioner I was healed. I did not have asthma, or any symptoms of asthma, again.

In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy we read (p. 365), "If the Scientist reaches his patient through divine Love, the healing work will be accomplished at one visit, and the disease will vanish into its native nothingness like dew before the morning sunshine." I believe this is what happened in my experience. During my conversation with the practitioner, I felt I had never met such a loving, caring, and compassionate woman.
