I should like to express my gratitude for being introduced to Christian Science. I did not take up the study of it for any healing, but because its explanations of what God and man are were so much more logical than any I had heard previously.

Since then I have had many healings. One experience which has stood out for me was the birth of my daughter. Three months before she was due, something happened which the doctor in attendance said meant the birth would take place within a few hours, or at the most within a few days. He also said that I should not have too much hope that the baby would live. But this did not disturb me, as I had the help of a Christian Science practitioner and, most important, of our Father-Mother God.

It came to my thought that in God's kingdom there are no timetables. I also knew God could not create a premature idea, as all His ideas are complete and mature. A few days later, while in labor, I was in great pain. It was believed that the baby would not be born for several hours. I turned to God for help and it came immediately—a full release from pain. And, before I knew what was happening, the baby was born. This experience proved to me that as we let God govern us the unreality of mortal beliefs is proved. God is in full control of His creation. The baby was complete with lashes and every feature of a nine-month baby.
