Before our daughter was born, I injured my pelvic bone

Before our daughter was born, I injured my pelvic bone. A Christian Science practitioner gave me treatment, and I was able to do all my household duties and care for our two young children. The physician engaged for the birth said that if I had had medical attention, I would have been in a cast from my neck to my heels. At the birth of the baby everything was harmonious, and as the baby was being born, the pelvic bone snapped back into place. This was the turning point in my experience. Branch church membership unfolded, and shortly after came the opportunity to have class instruction.

While attending a summer camp, our son was thrown off a horse and kicked in the forehead. Through the help of a practitioner he was healed in two treatments. He did not even have a headache during this experience; his love of horses has increased, and he has no fear of them. He was able to take his stand not to have stitches taken, and the healing was inspiring.

One evening while ironing, I turned in such a way that my hand landed with full force on the iron. The entire hand print was on the face of the iron. The first temptation was to look at the hand, but I turned away from matter to see that nothing could interfere with man's right activity as an idea of God. I cleaned the iron, wrapped a piece of cloth around the hand, and proceeded with the ironing, declaring the truth with confidence. There was no pain, and in three hours I had completed the ironing with ease.
