As a young mother, I suffered from hay fever for many years. I worked diligently in prayer to purify my thought from irritation and impatience. One night before retiring I decided to get into bed and fearlessly insist upon my divine right to normal breathing. I carefully reviewed "the scientific statement of being" from Science and Health. I woke in the morning free of all symptoms, which never returned.

My husband and I relied exclusively on Christian Science in rearing our son, and found healings of childhood diseases, a fractured wrist, symptoms of polio, and injuries from a skiing accident. Because of my trust in a loving Father-Mother God who cares for all His children, I was free of the nagging fears mothers often experience.

We read in Science and Health, "The prophylactic and therapeutic (that is, the preventive and curative) arts belong emphatically to Christian Science, as would be readily seen, if psychology, or the Science of Spirit, God, was understood" (p. 369). This has been evident in that I've found healing whenever I have felt pain in any part of my body. With a lifetime of Christian Science study behind me, I follow the counsel "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts" (p. 261).
