Because of the study of Christian Science, my life has been filled with blessings. Of those healings which have stood out to encourage and inspire me, I should like to mention a few.
Two which occurred during my high school years have been of great help. One was that of a headache which had been a constant problem for many, many months. I had not asked for the help of a practitioner about this or prayed for myself. I had, instead, relied upon self-will to keep as cheerful as possible.
Arriving at Sunday School early one Sunday morning, I sat down to talk with girls in the adjoining class. One of them was telling of an instantaneous healing of a headache which she had experienced through the help of a practitioner. As I listened, I thought, "If she can be healed, then headaches are not real, and I can stop believing that man can have one." The bell soon rang for Sunday School to start, and I returned to my own class, still thinking about this. Months later I realized that I had been completely free of the headache from that moment.
