I have been a student of Christian Science for many years and have been benefited by many healings. My mother was responsible for bringing our family into Christian Science after she was healed of a painful stomach disorder through the prayerful help of a Christian Science practitioner. After her healing she ate normally, without pain.

I have been healed of colds and of the effects of poison oak through the study of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. As a teenager, I was thrown from a horse while I was riding in rough terrain. My companion helped me to recover my mount and helped me back into the saddle. It appeared that my arm was broken. Upon arrival at home, we removed my sweater and found that a bone had pierced the skin near the elbow; it was evident there was a break. A practitioner was called and asked to assist through prayer, and over the next several days I prayed.

At one point I turned to this passage from Science and Health: "There is but one primal cause. Therefore there can be no effect from any other cause, and there can be no reality in aught which does not proceed from this great and only cause." As I read this powerful statement of spiritual truth, I lifted my arm to brush away hair that had fallen into my eyes. It was the arm that had been immobile. From then on, I had full use of the arm, and all signs of the break healed.
