Allergies healed

When I was a teenager, I began suffering from seasonal allergies at the end of each summer. Often when my family and friends were enjoying activities outdoors, I was either trying to keep up and feeling miserable, or cooped up indoors, not feeling much better.

Once when I was with my family at a lake with some good friends, I spent the day inside sneezing and blowing my nose. One of my friends, out of genuine concern, asked why I didn’t take some medicine to control the problem.

I had been raised in Christian Science, and my family had always relied on God for healing. I myself had witnessed and experienced countless instances of spiritual healing by turning to God. But after I’d been praying halfheartedly about the allergies without any results, the idea that something as simple as taking a pill might bring me relief from this suffering was an attractive one.
