Testimonies of Healing

From the March 1990 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Although I had been encouraged by my mother as I grew up to take an active part in church and to study Christian Science, it was only after marriage and the birth of a child that I sought to rely confidently on Christian Science. In fact, it was a specific experience that turned me wholeheartedly to Science.

At about eighteen months of age, our daughter developed a condition that required round-the-clock attention. A doctor recommended the child be hospitalized to give me some respite and to enable tests to be carried out. The tests provided no conclusive diagnosis, so my extremity became God's opportunity.

I called a Christian Science practitioner for assistance through prayer. Despite the debilitating nature of the condition, under Christian Science treatment this child soon resumed normal activity and has since led an active and healthy life, taking part in netball, tennis, riding horses, and swimming. We were committed to Science from that point on.
