Christian Science found me in a deep and dark pit

Christian Science found me in a deep and dark pit. I was under the care of a gynecologist, having exhausted the help of several witch doctors. I was told I had a womb infection. After three unsuccessful operations, doctors said the illness was incurable and wanted to remove my womb to reduce my suffering. I was most confused, afraid, and had lost all hope.

A dear friend introduced me to Christian Science, giving me a copy of the Sentinel and the textbook. I commenced reading the book and found the chapter entitled "Prayer" most uplifting. A few days later the excruciating pain in my womb left me. At the end of that month about four inches of the synthetic fibre used for stitching my wounds after each operation passed from my body during menstruation, and that was the end of these problems.

I also wish to give gratitude that, as a result of my study of Christian Science, an impending divorce between my husband and me didn't take place. We used to fight every day, and there were times when we would not speak to each other for up to four months, although we were living in the same house. But by mentally separating evil from man, who is made in the image and likeness of God (as stated in the book of Genesis), I was able to express more tolerance, patience, forgiveness, and love for my husband. Christian Science was helping me to see him and myself from a different outlook. I was able to see both of us as God's spiritual children, and our individual relationships to God as always intact; therefore our unity, established in God's permanency, could not be broken. I began to see good qualities in my husband that I had not seen before, and to appreciate and love him. Our homelife is now harmonious and loving.
