My mother became interested in Christian Science many years...

My mother became interested in Christian Science many years ago when Science was first known in our area. She had a healing of a heart condition, and because of her healing I, too, became a Christian Scientist. I was too old to attend Christian Science Sunday School, but I joined the branch church and went regularly. I also taught in the Sunday School.

When I married, we lived in a small town where my husband was clerk in charge of the bank. There was no Church of Christ, Scientist, there. As the children were born, I tried to teach them Christian Science, and we had many healings. As they grew older, we felt they should have a Sunday School. My husband also felt his position in this little town required church affiliation. I withdrew my membership in the branch church and also in The Mother Church. I tried to continue in the study of Christian Science, but it was difficult, and we became active in another denomination.
