When I was a young girl, after my mother had passed on, my father became interested in Christian Science and enrolled me and my sisters in a Christian Science Sunday School. My teacher was a consecrated student and was able to impart to the pupils some of the fundamentals of Christian Science, for which I am very grateful. After finishing Sunday School at the age of twenty, and before I became a church member, I drifted enough to realize that the teachings of Christian Science were needed to stabilize my life. Shortly after I became a member of a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, I married. As the children came into our home, I began to study earnestly and to make the truths of Christian Science my own.

When one child was born, with Christian Science treatment, the attending physician told me to inform the practitioner that the baby's breathing was not normal. Much fear had to be overcome in my thinking, but through this practitioner's faithful work the child was well and has led a very active life, playing on a high school football team and hiking in rugged high altitude terrain.

The children attended Christian Science Sunday School and often had healing experiences through their own understanding and prayer. During these childhood years we also had many healings through the work of devoted practitioners. I cannot begin to be grateful enough for those dear workers.
