When I was thirteen a friend of my mother suggested we learn about Christian Science. I was enrolled in a neighborhood Christian Science Sunday School, and I will never forget the devotion of those teachers. The spiritual foundation I received in Sunday School helped set my course with God through life.

My first healing through Christian Science came after an overnight hike with a friend. I woke with a rash covering my body. I hiked home in pain. My mother asked me if I wanted the help of a doctor or of Christian Science. I chose Science, and my mother called a Christian Science practitioner. This occurred on a Saturday morning. By Monday I was back in school, completely healed.

I am grateful for all the healings I have received through Science, for Christian Science class instruction, and for the continual inspiration I've gained from the Christian Science periodicals. I would also like to express gratitude for the branch churches of which I have been privileged to be a member at various times. There have been times when I have been "pulled through" a difficult experience by the inspiration gained from Sunday services and Wednesday testimony meetings.
