A dentist had advised that our youngest son had two front baby teeth that should be pulled and very soon. The X-ray showed their roots to be crooked and deeply embedded, due to a fall that had occurred some years before Christian Science became our way of life. The dentist was easily able to remove the simpler tooth of the two, but the boy got up and left the office and refused to return.

Now I began to pray about this situation. Several days before a visit with relatives, I heard the four children talking in another room. "You'd better get that tooth out, before Grandmother sees it. You know what she'll say!" said the oldest to the youngest. From where I stood I called, "We're leaving that to God." That was the end of that conversation.
