Last summer, while I was in Colorado, I woke up one night and I felt sick. I went looking for my dad and found him downstairs reading the Bible, and Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. My dad did not see me, and I went back upstairs to bed. Then I felt worse. I could hardly breathe, and I lost my food besides. Dad came when he heard me crying and found me on my knees in the bathroom. Then he carried me downstairs and put me on the couch. He read from Science and Health (p. vii), "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." That showed me I could depend on God for my healing.

My brother, Chris, heard us and got up and started reading hymns to himself out of the Christian Science Hymnal. I didn't seem to be getting any better, so my dad called a Christian Science practitioner to help me. Then he called my step-mom in California, who was there for her Christian Science association day. We knew her prayer would be with us at home, too. About fifteen minutes later I fell asleep. It was about midnight.

At about six o'clock I woke up and saw my dad resting on the floor; and I smiled at him and said, "Hey, Dad, we did it!" I was healed! Then we got up and had breakfast together.
