As a child I was so delicate that it was said I would never live to see fifteen, and I had constantly and secretly to pray to God for strength to live. My fears were many. Not until learning something of Christian Science did I lose the fear of death entirely and many other fears too. I wish to add that I now have grandchildren in their teens, and I have just terminated twenty-five years of going to business.

From the time they were eleven and twelve and throughout their high school years, my two boys experienced complete protection from harm while delivering papers and groceries on bicycles during icy weather, snowstorms, and extreme summer heat. I myself have been healed of stomach trouble, chest pains, chronic sore throat, and a tendency to take cold, which I had suffered from since childhood.
