[Of Special Interest to Children]

Patricia Ann went to the Christian Science Sunday School every Sunday. Sometimes she stayed after Sunday School and went to church with her mother. Then she felt very grown up and always sat very quietly through the service. She especially liked to sing hymns with her mother from the same Hymnal.

Patricia Ann found out that she should use every day what she was learning in Sunday School about Christian Science. So she tried to be loving to her friends and teachers and to be helpful at home.

When Patricia Ann felt ill, she used the truths to heal herself which she found in the Bible or in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One day, when she was holding a long yellow pencil in her hand, a bedroom door slammed against her arm and pushed the pointed pencil into her thigh. This time she called for her mother. Together they read (Science and Health, p. 424): "Accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind, and we must leave the mortal basis of belief and unite with the one Mind, in order to change the notion of chance to the proper sense of God's unerring direction and thus bring out harmony."
