About sixteen years ago I awoke one morning, got my family off to school and to work, and was preparing myself for work when I began to have symptoms of paralysis. By noon I was unable to move. I had been going through some trying business affairs and pressures at my place of employment, and I had become deeply involved in self-will and self-justification.

I contacted my parents in a distant city. They began prayer for me to help me free my thought of these errors so that I could find the peace to be free physically as well. My mother came to help care for me. She spent much time each day declaring aloud to me spiritual facts. She talked of God, our Father-Mother, and of myself as His perfect image and likeness, His spiritual reflection. Listening to records of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy gave me renewed inspiration.
