My grandparents were Christian Scientists, our grandchildren...

My grandparents were Christian Scientists, our grandchildren are Christian Scientists, and everyone in between can say the same. It has been a religion, a church, a way of life, which has "worked" for each of us. It's difficult to compress five generations of gratitude into one brief testimony, but I'll try.

We were told, when our son was two years old, that he would have to wear thick glasses all of his life because he had an astigmatism which was severe. For those who might be laboring long with a problem, take heart. This healing did not come overnight, but it did come. His father and I prayed consistently for him with an expectancy that at some point he would see without glasses. This was not an uninformed faith. It was faith based on a spiritual understanding of God, cultivated by daily study of the Bible, which is replete with accounts of spiritual healing, and the study of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, a book that had explained those Biblical healings to us. The boy was fully healed.
