My parents were both students...

My parents were both students of Christian Science, and I have never known any other religion. However, the first healing which was significant to me occurred when I was ten years old. I was sent home from school with symptoms of a contagious disease. In accord with regulations, the Board of Health was notified, and after I had received an examination, our home was quarantined for scarlet fever.

A Christian Science practitioner was called and worked lovingly. Although the healing was not immediate, it was complete, with no long period of convalescence or other aftereffects prophesied by the health officials. We were living in quite small quarters at the time, but the other members of the family were beautifully protected and manifested no symptoms of the disease.

I have always been grateful that as I matured, smoking and social drinking presented no temptation to me. My husband and I have relied entirely on the teachings of Christian Science in rearing our four children. They are enrolled in the Sunday School and have had many proofs of God's tender care for His children. Our family has experienced healings of so-called children's diseases and of effects of accidents. Unhappy relationships, grief, and lack of employment have likewise been overcome.
