One day after school, after changing buses, I discovered that I had lost my bus pass. I was unable to take my next bus and was not familiar with the neighborhood, but I knew that God was with me and would direct me home. Then I looked to God and He directed me step by step until I was safely home.

I was very grateful for this proof of God's guidance. In Sunday School I had learned from the Bible (Prov. 3:5, 6): "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

Recently I had a severe cold. My mother thought I should go to the hospital, but I wanted to rely on God alone for healing, and my mother consented. My Sunday School teacher recommended that I study the ninety-first Psalm, and "the scientific statement of being" from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. This I did. Some of the words are (p. 468): "Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual." The next Sunday when I went to Sunday School, I was glad to tell of a quick healing. I was completely well.
