In the year 1904 I received my first healing in Christian Science. Because I was a clergyman's wife and two other members of my family who lived near by were physicians, I had little or no experience or knowledge of Christian Science.

Ten days before our third child was born, I experienced several sinking spells a day. The nurse we had employed was a Christian Scientist. On one occasion during this interval our twenty-one months old son came to my bedside. This awakened me to the seriousness of my condition. I asked the nurse, "Am I going to live?" She replied that Christian Science could help me. I told her that I wanted this help, so that I might live for my children. Immediately she called a Christian Science practitioner, who came that night. For three days I rested, never having another sinking spell, and the baby girl was born. In ten days, I was about the house doing my own work.
