Before my birth Christian Science...

Before my birth Christian Science healed my mother of stomach trouble. The doctor in a sanatorium recommended Science to her after stating that medically no more could be done for her. I am grateful for my parents' steadfast loyalty to its teaching in the early years of the movement. Christian Science, I am grateful to say, has been the only religion I have known, and it has met every need of my life.

The doctor who examined me upon my entrance to college said that I had a condition called lordosis and that my back should be placed in a cast. It was stated that later on I would need special help with physical exercises. The doctor was also insistent that I wear special arch-supporting shoes.

The prayerful help of a Christian Science practitioner was sought, and not one of the doctor's recommendations was accepted. This verse from Isaiah was pondered daily (54:17): "No weapon that is formed againstthee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord."
