Several years ago a good friend of mine told me about Christian Science and how this church practiced healing. I was welcomed at a local branch church with warmth and caring, and the love has never ceased to pour into my spirit from the members' many sources of inspiration. I have developed a profound reverence and gratitude for the many ways the Christian Science Church puts love into action to feed its sheep. Many times, and in many ways, I have been encouraged, blessed, healed, and morally strengthened. I would like to share some of these times with you.

My very first healing occurred a few months after I began attending church services. I remember sitting in church coughing so much that I was afraid I was disturbing the service. But I fully expected to be healed, and I didn't want to miss out on any opportunity to be washed clean by Truth. At home, my husband, who wasn't a Christian Scientist, suggested that if I didn't get healed soon, I should go to the hospital emergency room. He thought I might have pneumonia. I knew very little about Truth and why it is a healing truth. But I felt if others were healed simply by reading Science and Health, then there was no reason that I wouldn't also receive those same blessings.
