Ringworm healed

With deep gratitude I want to share a healing of a long-standing problem. For five years I suffered with skin trouble on many parts of my body, especially in midsummer and midwinter. What bothered me most about this problem, which was diagnosed by a doctor as ringworm, was the marks it left on my face. They made me feel self-conscious about my looks. 

For a while I used medicated creams to reduce the symptoms to some extent, but there was no permanent cure. I had had this problem for almost a year when a friend told me that Christian Science heals and invited me to attend a Wednesday testimony meeting at her branch church. After the meeting she gave me a copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. My friend also introduced me to a Christian Science practitioner, and I felt impelled to talk to her about this problem there and then. I was astonished at her comment: “But I can’t see any ugly marks on your face.” She wasn’t speaking about my physical appearance. She was referring to my perfect spiritual identity as a child of God. Then she added, “God has made you beautiful.”
