I had the sacred privilege of attending a Christian Science Sunday School in which were taught many wonderful truths of man's real existence as a child of God. The healings I experienced during these years certainly evidenced God's power. At one time while climbing a tree, I jumped down, catching my arm on a sawed-off limb. The skin was torn, exposing the bone, and the bleeding was profuse. Within minutes after Mother called a practitioner, I was again outside playing. The healing was complete in a short while.

However, I took these healings too much for granted, and as a young adult I drifted away from the teachings of Science. Only after I had children of my own and was faced with choosing between material means or reliance on God for healing did I become an earnest student of Christian Science. What a happy choice ! The spiritual understanding this Science imparts meets our family's need abundantly. The healings since then have been many and varied, proving that God is a very present help no matter what our problems are.

One year our son was bothered with warts on both hands. During games at school other children sometimes refused to hold hands with him because of this. When he had been particularly embarrassed, we did prayerful work. But the warts continued, and at times we were tempted to try material remedies suggested by well-meaning friends.
