I count among my greatest blessings...

I count among my greatest blessings my attendance at a Christian Science Sunday School when I was a child. Even though I held its teachings in respect, I allowed myself to drift away from any active part in the Christian Science movement. Shortly after my third child was born I suffered from a nervous breakdown, and the fear of death was almost overwhelming. Help from a Christian Science practitioner was sought, and he confidently reassured me in the words of Mary Baker Eddy's statement in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (Pref., p. vii), "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." Improvement began immediately, and within a few weeks the healing was complete. A false sense of responsibility and other erroneous traits yielded at the same time.

This experience awakened me to the fact that Christian Science is extremely practical and to the need of following its teachings earnestly in order to demonstrate this practicality. Since then I have found it of inestimable value in rearing a family. My younger daughter was beautifully protected when she fell from a moving car onto a busy street. My son was healed of partial deafness through the loving and patient help of a practitioner.
