I am a third generation Christian Scientist,...

I am a third generation Christian Scientist, and I knew the joy of attending a Christian Science Sunday School until I was twenty, by which time I was taking a baby daughter to Sunday School with me. I had many healings as a child, and also many instances of divine protection.

At the birth of each of our children a Christian Science practitioner gave me treatment. Harmony was the rule, and each birth was more harmonious than the previous one. Our children have been healed, sometimes in less than an hour, of so-called children's diseases. I have been healed, through spiritual means, of abscesses in the ear, burns, and migraine.

This last healing took place several years ago. When I was in great pain one day a practitioner pointed out that both the past and the future belonged to God. I had been reviewing a condition that had taken place a year or two before. I felt that I had handled it all wrong. When I pondered the implication of the practitioner's words, I was healed. This condition has never returned.
