Last winter I went to Wisconsin to see my father

Last winter I went to Wisconsin to see my father. It was a lot of fun, playing games and swimming. I got sick; my father wanted me to take some medicine. I said "No" and started to pray. My mother had recently told me to face the foe, so I did that. To face the foe does not mean people are enemies, it means to find error is nothing. It is just false sense speaking to your consciousness, saying that it is something. In this case the error was sickness. I knew that God's child was perfect and that I was His child. I fell asleep.

When I woke up I was healed. My grandmother and father were surprised and wanted to know what I did. I was able to share Christian Science with them. I am very grateful for Christian Science.
