I wish to express my gratitude for the many blessings and healings our family has experienced.

One healing involved our younger boy. He and our older boy were playing ball in the yard, and the older boy was throwing fast balls for the younger one to practice catching. One ball thrown extra hard hit the boy in the head near the temple. He came in crying and in much pain. I had him lie down and began declaring man's freedom from accident. I began to make a separation in my thought between his true perfect selfhood, untouched and undisturbed, and the belief of mortal man, which is only an accumulation of beliefs, all of which are false. I recall telling him that suffering is no part of God's plan for His children. He ceased crying within minutes and was ready to play soon after. There was never any swelling or discoloration at any time.

This same boy had another quick healing. A firecracker he lit failed to go off. He bent down to examine it, and it exploded in his face. I was directed to look out of the window at that moment and saw him cover his eyes with his hands and walk into the garage. I went out and brought him into the house and put a washcloth over his eyes. We began to do prayerful work, declaring man's immunity from accident and pain and evil's powerlessness even to touch any of God's ideas, much less hurt them. In less than twenty minutes he was completely free and ready to play again.
