Several years prior to my birth my parents took up the earnest study of Christian Science. Consequently I had the joyous privilege of being brought up in a home where we habitually turned to God for healing of inharmony or disease. Added to this basic home training were sixteen years of regular attendance in a Christian Science Sunday School.

This firm foundation of proof by demonstration has been of considerable comfort and encouragement in more recent years as I have continued to receive blessings from the application of these valued teachings. It is now my joy to be engaged in Sunday School teaching and to see my own children receiving this blessing.

I have seen and experienced the healing of many so-called children's diseases, including measles, mumps, chicken pox, and croup. When I was losing my first teeth, the dental verdict that my jaw could never contain the growing teeth was reversed completely through the prayerful work of my mother. One of the first healings I received through my own work was that of a badly sprained ankle.
