My healing from reading Science and Health
One year ago, when I was eight years old, my awesome mom encouraged me to read Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. I knew this book from going to the Christian Science Sunday School, but I had never read it all the way through.
For a while I read it, but then I just stopped reading it. My mom encouraged me to continue again, and so slowly I kept on going back and reading more and more.
Recently, I was on the last chapter. I thought that I had read enough, so I stopped reading because my head hurt. Suddenly, I was crying in my bed, and my mom asked me what was wrong. I told her about my headache, and I asked her if headaches were healed in the Bible, because I knew lots of other things were. She said she couldn’t remember headaches being healed in the Bible, but she knew they had been healed through Christian Science before because she had read testimonies of people’s healings.
Then she asked me what chapter I was on in Science and Health, and I said I was on “Fruitage.” This is a chapter full of testimonies from people who were healed just by reading Science and Health. My mom said reading these testimonies could also help me, so I kept reading. I found many helpful, healing experiences. As I read, I remembered that God never created evil or harm, because God is all good. I was able to fall asleep peacefully. In the morning, I was completely better.
After I finished Science and Health, my mom told me I should write an article so that everyone could read about my healing, so I did.
