Twenty-one years ago my son was healed of tuberculosis...

Twenty-one years ago my son was healed of tuberculosis, said to be hereditary, as his father had passed on with the disease. The family physician found a large cavity in one lung. Through the study of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, with no other help and with very little understanding, the healing was completed in one month. My son is now a strong, healthy man, and has never had a return of the old trouble.

To anyone understanding the Principle of healing, it would be hard to conceive of even a possibility of straying from the truth after such a demonstration of divine healing. I realize now that as we are ready, the teaching comes: that each and every experience is a necessary lesson. I know that once the seek is sown, the law is, "First the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear."

For years in my work I was held in bondage by a false sense of responsibility, a fear for the maintenance of my three boys, and also the thought that I was not good enough to be a Christian Scientist.
