Mary Lee Gets a Good Grade

[For young teens]

At the end of the first quarter in school Mary Lee's arithmetic mark had been 70 percent—fair; at the end of the second quarter it had been 60 percent—poor but passing; and now at the end of the third quarter the mark was 50 percent—failure. Mary Lee knew that to be promoted she would need an average of 60 percent for the year; so she was worried.

When Mary Lee brought her report card home, her mother reminded her that she was a Christian Scientist and that she knew that God, the only Mind, could help her. So Mary Lee turned to God in prayer.
