I first heard of Christian Science...

I first heard of Christian Science just before my marriage in the early nineteen-twenties. We read in Isaiah (30:21), "Thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left." This way proved for me to be the study of Science.

Two years later, when our daughter was born, I had help in Science. I had always been considered a delicate child, and I was the youngest of four sisters; the others had already had children and had experienced difficult births. My mother, who was not a Scientist, anticipated similar difficulty for me. When the time came I had the prayerful support of a practitioner, and the birth proved a very satisfactory, joyful, and speedy experience, accomplished without medication of any kind.

I should like to share a healing which I had a few years ago. While walking over some fields with my dog, I had to climb a stile which was about four feet high. The dog was attached to a leather leash, since there were sheep in the field. As I mounted, a pheasant ran across the path a few feet ahead of the stile. Normally the dog awaits the command before he moves, but he at once sprang forward, pulling me to the ground.
