As a young girl I was raised in a Christian home by devout parents. A beloved aunt living nearby was a dedicated Christian Scientist. In observing her I marveled that one could have such dominion and be so consistently happy. Later, when I was a young woman, I met two other students of Christian Science, a co-worker and a neighbor who also expressed these same qualities and practiced the teachings of Christian Science faithfully.

Some years later when the fear of polio was sweeping the country, our five-year-old daughter was stricken. Early medical treatment by specialists failed to heal her, and she was left with a twisted leg. It was then that I reached out for Truth, believing that if God is Love, He could not possibly sanction such a predicament for this beautiful child. Christian Science treatment was asked of a dedicated practitioner. Within a week the leg was perfectly normal, and the child had not even a trace of a limp. It was becoming clear to me, and happily so, that our human needs are not dependent upon material knowledge but are supplied by an all-powerful God, an ever-present help. The truth of Mrs. Eddy's words (Science and Health, p. 231) "What God cannot do, man need not attempt" satisfied me.
