Ballet dancer healed

Each week since its beginning in 1898, the Christian Science Sentinel has published a representative sample of verified testimonies of healing, told in their own words by men, women, and children throughout the world.

One day in ballet class during an intensive summer ballet program I suddenly had an intense pain in my knee that prevented me from walking comfortably, much less dancing. I immediately affirmed my freedom from any limitations or problems that are expected to occur from so many long, hard hours of dance. I asked the teacher if I could be excused and went and called my mother, who immediately called a Christian Science practitioner for prayerful treatment. My mother assured me that she was praying for me, also, and reminded me that as a dancer I expressed beauty, poise, and grace—not pain, suffering, or fear.
