As a teen-ager, nearly fifty years ago, I started to attend the Christian Science Sunday School. Here I began to glimpse something of the wonderful freedom and joy of recognizing man as the beloved child of God instead of as a miserable sinner, which had been the basis of my previous orthodox Sunday School teaching.

At once I began to apply this new concept of living, and many small experiences followed, proving to me that, as the Master, Christ Jesus, said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32). Christ Jesus' example came alive to me, and I began to understand him as the great Exemplar, to be not only revered but followed.

There have been many proofs in our home that Christian Science heals—in my own experience, my husband's, and during the period our two children were growing up. These healings have included measles, whooping cough, sprains, a heart condition, and a severe arthritic condition in the right arm.
