I had only been interested in Christian Science about two years when I was given the opportunity to demonstrate God's allness. I was playing basket ball in another town when my little finger was broken. I had to drive home—about twelve miles—and the pain was intense, and by the time I got there my hand was swollen and black. The pain was so intense I could not stand still long enough to talk, so asked a friend to telephone for help. I had one treatment that night and one the next day. The pain stopped after the first treatment and the swelling began to go down. Although the doctor told me that the knuckle was badly fractured, I never lost one night's sleep and had no material help of any kind touch my finger. Christian Science taught me to rely absolutely on God. I am unable to express my gratitude, remembering at all times that "with God all things are possible."

My little girl fell on the ice one day and the doctor told us as far as he could see she had a broken shoulder. I helped her, as we are taught in Christian Science, as far as I understood, and having proved God's power many times before, I had no fear, until the sixth day when the suggestion came that I should have the shoulder set, and so I saw the doctor. He said that union had started and she would have to go to the city and have it broken and reset. The first three words of that sentence gave me far more courage than he realized,—union had started; in fact, union was always complete, only I had not realized it. So I left him still the best of friends, but more convinced than ever that God's way is best. In two weeks the child went to school again, and in less than a month her arm was in use like the other. Whooping cough, jaundice, toothache, and other ills have also been healed through Christian Science.
