My first encounter with Christian Science came through a Christian Science practitioner who helped me overcome nervous debility. I had been hospitalized twice in a psychiatric ward with this condition. On my return home after the second time, in absolute despair of ever again living a normal life, I got in touch with a Christian Science practitioner. He prayed for me and visited me weekly for many months. In our conversations he told me I was the loved child of God. He also asked me to think about these statements from the Bible: "I can of mine own self do nothing" (John) and "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me" (philippians).

After some time I was fully healed. I applied for membership in The Mother Church and became a sincere student of Christian Science. This healing took place many years ago, and there has been no return of the condition.

When our little boy was born, the doctor said that he had a navel hernia. I got in touch with a practitioner, who prayed with us, and I also studied references from the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy. The baby was soon healed. He is now five years old and has had no further difficulties with his navel.
