To the Christian Science Sunday School, which early planted my feet in the path of righteousness and taught me how to work out my problems through reliance on God, I am deeply grateful. Since early childhood Christian Science has been my sole religion and medicine, and it has satisfied my greatest longings and questionings through school and college years. Each year it occupies a more vital and absorbing part of my daily living, particularly since the blessing of class instruction came to me.

My healings from physical difficulties have been accomplished sometimes through my own efforts and sometimes with the help of practitioners, and they include the overcoming of colds, headaches, burns, pain caused by the extraction of impacted wisdom teeth, and an illness I believed to be influenza, when I was all alone in a distant country without access even to a telephone. Even greater joy, however, has resulted from helping to reflect Truth's healing power for others, which has been my privilege on a few occasions.

The most outstanding of all the proofs I have had of God's protecting care came in connection with a problem involving a decision which the human sense of love and wisdom was utterly unable to make. Earnest prayer for understanding to see the right path and for strength to be obedient was continued untiringly. For a time it seemed that the only possible path was fraught with disappointment and grief. Then suddenly day dawned and consciousness was illuminated with the realization that the way seemed unhappy because it was being chosen through dependence on human personality, and that in reality it was the way of Mind's directing and was to be a joyous course. Words cannot describe the relief which was experienced at this sudden elevation out of the fog of personal sense into the glorious sunlight of Truth. And the solution proved to be a mount of vision for all concerned, the memory of which remains to bless and encourage in many a dark hour.
