My heart sings with gratitude for Christian Science

My heart sings with gratitude for Christian Science. I was raised in Christian Science, so I experienced its healing effect throughout my childhood. During the past few years my appreciation for Science has deepened.

Over twenty years ago my mother started reading Christian Science periodicals that were brought by members of the local branch Church of Christ, Scientist, to the hospital where she was employed as a nurse. Through this literature, and the Christian Scientists she met, she became interested and began attending the local church.

Soon after this, when I first started drinking milk as an infant, I reacted with severe bronchitis and a rash that covered my body. A pediatrician informed my mother that I was allergic to milk and prescribed a medicine. My mother knew from her newfound religion that she could rely on God; so she asked a Christian Science practitioner for help through prayer. I began to breathe more easily, and my skin cleared up. I have drunk milk ever since with no ill effects. Since then we have relied solely on spiritual means for healing.
