I would like to share several healings that have been significant in my life. One, which I had through my own prayers, was of warts on my feet. I was about seven years old at the time, and my father, who wasn't a Christian Scientist, said if the warts weren't gone in a week he would take me to a doctor. Within that time the condition improved so much that I was allowed to continue working it out through prayer alone. In a very short time I was completely healed, and able to resume swimming at our local YMCA. In my prayer I had thought about "the scientific statement of being," which starts out, "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter" (Science and Health, p. 468). I have had many healings just by working to understand this passage from the Christian Science textbook.

Years later I had a severe skin condition on my feet. I prayed with the help of a Christian Science practitioner for some time, but it didn't improve. I remember sitting one day, talking to God and telling Him I knew He had made me perfect and complete; I wasn't going to allow myself to be impressed with the appearance of disease. I knew this wasn't God's plan for me. The next time I looked at my feet, I saw that the condition had changed drastically for the better. After that, the full healing came quickly.
