A desire to thank God for a healing of our young son had brought me to a testimony meeting in a Church of Christ, Scientist, one Wednesday night. Prior to this time of the boy's healing I had not actively studied Christian Science for nine years. At the testimony meeting, much to my surprise, I found myself standing and testifying to this healing. "The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord" (Prov.16:1). The healing was the beginning of our family's "new birth."

The questions my husband and I were asking about God and our relationship to God were not being answered in the church we had attended, so I told my husband that as a young girl I had at one time been a pupil in a Christian Science Sunday School. I recalled that we daily studied the Lesson-Sermon and gained much good from it. So my husband and I obtained a Christian Science Quarterly, containing references for study from the Bible and  Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy—the same Lesson-Sermon which is read at the Sunday service. Through this simple but searching study our son was healed.
