In 1926, when I was expecting a child, quite a few of my friends doubted the successful outcome of the approaching confinement because of my poor state of health. I was much weakened by heart disease and had little resistance. During this time I read a great deal in the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, seeking strength and comfort. I came through the birth comparatively well, but soon it was evident that the added burden of motherhood was too much for me. In our distress my husband and I decided to ask a Christian Science practitioner for help. Thanks to her loving help my health soon began to improve, and in a short time I was able to carry out all of my duties as a wife and mother.

In 1934 our son was healed of pneumonia through Christian Science treatment. A year later he was taken ill with angina, followed by a severe attack of nephritis. Instead of turning to Christian Science, we first called a doctor. Shaking his head gravely, he said that he suspected typhus and recommended moving the child to a hospital. On his advice we consulted another doctor, whose diagnosis was the same. Because the heart action was getting weaker, the child's condition became more critical. Then we got in touch with a Christian Science practitioner as quickly as possible—we lived in the country a long way from her home—and asked for help. She arrived at our home the next day and remained throughout the afternoon, working for the child.
