I am grateful for the tranquillity which Christian Science has brought into my life. Both my parents and my husband have had class instruction in Christian Science, as have I. This fact is the reason for the tranquillity I have experienced. I am most grateful to have the joy of living in a family of Christian Scientists.

There have been some problems to ruffle the peace. We were on a vacation in a national park when our younger son became ill. He was quite uncomfortable, and I drove a short distance to the nearest phone. I called a practitioner a few hundred miles away, but her phone was answered by her answering service. I gave the message that help was needed, then returned to our camp. Before I got there, the boy had quieted, and he felt no further discomfort although the outward evidence of the problem took perhaps a week to dissipate. I found out later that the answering service had given the message to the practitioner immediately and that help had been given at once.
