Many blessings have come into our home through Christian Science, and I gladly avail myself of the privilege offered us to express our gratitude through the periodicals.
Some of the healings for which we are grateful are of broken bones occasioned while playing football, diabetes, heart trouble, eye discomfort, rupture, running sore of many years' standing, stomach disorder, and spinal complication; also our children's teeth have been straightened. Some conditions have been overcome instantaneously; others have required more time and greater understanding. The reading of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy and conscientious mental work have made these healings permanent.
First of all, I found that it was necessary to eliminate the belief that life and substance, cause and effect, intelligence and law, are properties of matter; also to see that each and every one belongs inherently to God, Spirit, Life, Truth, divine Principle. I found that all my inclinations and decisions, my sense of supply and of all human relationships, my faith in "the powers that be," had to be changed from a material basis to the spiritual, through the transforming understanding of Christian Science.
