Multiple sclerosis healed

I was brought up in religious denominations other than Christian Science. When I was 22 years old, married and with a two-year-old son, I began to realize something was wrong with my health. After a stay in the hospital and procedures that included X-rays and a spinal tap, three doctors diagnosed me with multiple sclerosis. The verdict was frightening, as there was little to no hope for my recovery.

My husband had attended Christian Science Sunday School as a teenager, and when we got home from the doctor’s office, he offered me a copy of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Though he wasn’t practicing Christian Science at that point, he said he knew it could help me.

At first I was in disbelief—how was a book going to help me? I really tried to read it over the next couple of months, but it made no sense to me. Then one day at the library, I found another book on spiritual healing, which talked about how Christian healing is possible but usually a dormant part of religious faith. I no longer remember the title of this book or its author, but it was a revelation. I hadn’t thought I could trust God to heal me, but here were two books stating that healing is possible!
