I did not take up the study of Christian Science for physical healing. Although I had seen a neighbor healed, it was not until a relative began the study that I became interested. One of the first healings we had in our home was of our infant boy. The attending physician said he had heart trouble, and would not be strong or live very long. I at once had a letter sent to a dear practitioner asking for help, which was lovingly given; and in two weeks the baby was perfectly healed. He is now a strong child, and has never taken medicine.

An elder child had measles and grippe one winter. It seemed to leave him so that he could not hear unless we were very close to him and talked very loudly. I finally sent him to school on a Friday afternoon. The teacher sent word by our little girl that we would have to do something, as he could not hear. On Saturday morning I took him to a practitioner. He received present treatment, and was instantly healed. As we went home I talked to him in a natural way, and almost to my surprise he could hear.

Many blessings have come into our home through the understanding of Christian Science. The evening before our last baby was born I had my husband go to town and get my sister-in-law, who is also a Christian Scientist. She had helped me on several occasions before. I was delivered so quickly that it seemed like a miracle. I am deeply grateful for this experience, because when our other children were born I suffered for a long time.
