I turned to Christian Science after I was married and had children

I turned to Christian Science after I was married and had children. When our daughter was about twelve years old, she was out of school for nine weeks; and after several examinations it was found that she reacted to the skin test for tuberculosis. Since I had seen something of this disease in relatives, I decided it was time to turn to something other than medical help. I hunted in an old trunk for a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, which had been given me many years before, and read it to her, also asking a practitioner to treat her. My daughter accepted the truths put before her and became strong and healthy, free of the tuberculosis, and changed from a whining, complaining child into a happy, useful girl.

During the time this healing was taking place, a blister on my daughter's heel became infected. I was quite fearful and called a Christian Science practitioner. Through her prayerful assurance I was able to go to bed and leave the healing to God. The next morning the blister had opened and drained; the ankle, which had been swollen, was its normal size. This amazed me so much that I was then and there convinced of the efficacy of Christian Science and took up a more serious study of it, relying entirely upon its teachings in every way.
