For about two years I had a problem with my feet. At times they were quite painful, to the point where I found myself hobbling, barely able to walk.
Early last year, I began experiencing a sharp pain in my chest, particularly on my left side. At first, I thought little of it—I had been following a new workout regimen and figured that with a little rest, the problem would subside.
Early in March 2016, as I walked through a West Coast airport to return home after a brief visit to attend my future grandchild’s baby shower, my legs didn’t feel normal, and I had to sit down. I realized that I needed prayerful help if I was going to be able to get to the gate, so I called a Christian Science practitioner for treatment through prayer.
One day several years ago I noticed that something was amiss with my cat’s mouth. When I took the cat, Beau, for a dental visit, the veterinarian informed me that Beau had a terminal mouth tumor.
One weekend when I was a student at a university in London, I visited my parents, who lived an hour away by bus. Returning on the bus that Sunday evening, I was feeling extremely unwell with flu-like symptoms, including a bad cough.
About six years ago, I had an experience in which a greater understanding of the true, spiritual concept of body, and of the Holy Ghost, brought immediate healing. It was a Sunday, and that morning I had flown across the United States to my hometown.
Although going to a hospital was not my choice, I ended up being taken to one when a loving and concerned family member called for an ambulance one day after I had a health scare. After I was admitted, nurses rolled me down a hall where I read the words “Stroke Unit” on the wall.
We read in the Holy Scriptures: “To be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” ( Romans 8:6 ). This two-part statement is profoundly relevant to each of us, as can be proven in the rough times and the good times of our everyday lives.
I want to share a recent significant healing, not only because I am most grateful for it, but because of what I feel impelled the immediacy of the healing. My husband and I were visiting family for a weekend, which included seeing our grandchildren in their high school and college productions, and also going to a professionally staged musical.
Sometime in the spring of 2016, I experienced digestive problems for about a week. I had been praying about it, and on Friday night went to bed feeling happy and healthy.
