The first healing in our family...

The first healing in our family of five was of diseased tonsils. A school nurse called on me to explain how badly this condition was affecting our son and said that he would not be allowed back in school after the summer holidays unless he had had the tonsils removed. I did not approve of surgical operations, as this boy had had one that was not successful, and he was already behind a term in school because of sickness. The boy had been attending a Christian Science Sunday School for a few months through the invitation of a school chum. I was very happy about this, for it was the longest period he had attended any Sunday School. He had been enrolled in several different orthodox Sunday Schools, but was unable to find satisfaction and happiness in any of them.

My mother, who was visiting me at the time, urged me to have Christian Science treatment, as she had heard of main cases of healing through this Science. The next day I took the boy to a practitioner. She listened patiently to my story and then invited me to attend church services. She also showed me how to study the Lesson-Sermon, as given in the Christian Science Quarterly.
