Through Christian Science my mother was healed of Bright's disease over fifty years ago after a doctor had said he could do no more for her. Her life for nearly forty years thereafter was a succession of triumphs over sickness and limitation. However, I did not turn wholeheartedly to this Truth until problems incident to the raising of my own family showed me the folly of ignoring God.

Even before I became an earnest student numerous healings were experienced when the truth was faithfully applied. One which especially stands out was that of croup, which had been greatly feared in my own childhood. When our oldest son was a baby he was subject to croup, and one night the evidence was quite frightening. After asking help from a practitioner, my wife and I studied "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy far into the night.

At length I suggested that we go to bed and leave the baby's door open so we could readily hear him if he needed us. His mother said, "What could we do that God can't do?" This willingness to trust God completely brought the healing. We closed the door and slept uninterruptedly throughout the night. In the morning there was no sign of the trouble. There has been no recurrence of croup in our family since that time.
