When I took up the study of Christian Science, I stood alone against what seemed an insurmountable wall of theological prejudice and opposition. I was asked not to teach our children Christian Science; and was not permitted to employ a practitioner for them in case of need. I must either do the work myself or call in the family physician. Having often seen inability inability of materia medica to meet the needs of humanity, and particularly in our own home, I was very loath to trust my children to its care.

Each day I gathered these little ones together and read to them without comment from the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. The unfoldment of the child-thought was beautiful to see, and many healings took place during those years. One in particular has been an inspiration to me ever since. Many times, when the way has seemed hard, I have gone back in thought to this healing and found strength to go on. I have also found that when I act as believing the truth which I declare, and rely on it, I never fail to get results. If the healing seems slow and the results are not forthcoming, it is invariably because I have leaned on my own understanding instead of trusting God.
