The first healing in our home...

The first healing in our home through Christian Science was that of our son, who, because of a malnutritional disorder, weighed at the age of six months but four ounces over his weight at birth. His healing was immediate, and within two or three weeks he was a normal and healthy baby. This brought to me a deep and abiding conviction that I had found God, and although I did not seriously study this Science at once, yet that conviction remained to guide and heal when I was willing to be divinely led to apply this great truth.

Many so-called children's diseases were avoided by our handling of the suggestion of contagion, and the discords that appeared were quickly healed.

Once, while visiting in the home of relatives, our son ate six or seven candied laxative tablets. I held to the Biblical statement, "If they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them" (Mark 16:18). There were no aftereffects.
