Three and a half years ago a baby was born to me with a foot turned so that he would never be able to walk. The doctor asked me to put braces on him, but I did not like to do that; yet I knew something must be done if I wanted my boy to walk. Later, on hearing of Christian Science, I went to a faithful practitioner, and with one treatment the child not only stood but walked. He was then fifteen months old, and ever since he has been perfectly straight. People who do not know that he was crippled, would never think of it. This great truth not only cured my baby, but it has healed me of a stomach trouble that doctors pronounced incurable, and has helped me to the righteous way of living. I am glad to say that my healing has proved permanent, more than three years having passed since it occurred. My oldest boy had been a sufferer from malaria, but since he has learned of Christian Science and attends Sunday school, he has not had a sick day.

This teaching has indeed brought health, peace, and happiness to our home, and for the understanding of Truth which I have gained, words fail to express my thankfulness to God and my gratitude to our dear Leader.
