My mother turned to Christian Science...

My mother turned to Christian Science because she felt that it could heal me; I was a very sickly, nervous, and unhappy child. After I was placed in a Christian Science Sunday School, I improved physically and was very happy. Later, when I married and we had a family, our two sons also attended the Christian Science Sunday School.

When our elder son was about eight years old he had rheumatism, and for months he could not eat solid food. During the winter months his joints were swollen, and he was in great pain. I was very fearful, and although loving help was given him by a practitioner, he did not respond. I was endeavoring to see him as a perfect idea of God, but I could not overcome my fear concerning him.

One day I determined to apply more earnestly the truths I had learned in the Christian Science Sunday School, in an effort to herd my fear and to help our son as well. I had the time and could be with him constantly. Several weeks later he had a hemorrhage from the nose and mouth. I then called a practitioner for help, and a great sense of peace came over me. A growth came away, and the boy very shortly got up, ate his dinner, and has been well ever since. He served for three years in World War II.
