When I was eight years of age,...

When I was eight years of age, my younger sister and I visited a Christian Science Sunday School. From then on we were regular attendants at the Sunday School until we reached the age of twenty. So too were the other three children in our family.

I shall always be grateful for the consecrated workers in the Sunday School, who helped me gain a firm foundation in our religion. Through my childhood I used the truths I learned to heal so-called children's diseases, to help me in my schoolwork and in solving many problems of human relationship.

Later I was healed of chronic constipation, chronic intestinal influenza, gall bladder attacks, and hemorrhoids. An outstanding physical healing was that of acute jaundice just a year after my marriage. While we were moving into a new home we had built, I was stricken suddenly with this condition and was taken to the home of my parents, who lovingly cared for me while a Christian Science practitioner treated me.
