I count my Christian Science Sunday School training as my number one blessing, and the second, my dear parents who have been steadfast, loving, dedicated Christian Scientists and who placed me in the Sunday School. Between the two, I have been taught the desire to obey and love the Father, the Giver of all good.

We have had many proofs of God's care in our family. All five of our children have had opportunities to apply their own understanding of the truth.

About three years ago I received a call from our school principal, informing me that our nine-year-old daughter had been badly burned on the arm during a cooking demonstration in the classroom. I thanked him for calling, and after hanging up I began to express gratitude for the love and concern being expressed. On the way to school I claimed the child's freedom from the belief of accident, and her ever-present perfection. I thanked God she had never left the presence of her divine Father-Mother. I learned later she had immediately turned to "the scientific statement of being" and experienced no pain. The closing words of the statement, found on page 468 of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, are: "Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual." The healing was accomplished within a very few days, and within a month no trace of an injury remained.
