Single parent learns to lean on God

Becoming acquainted with Christian Science was the best thing that ever happened to me! I accepted Science when my wife was healed of difficulty during the birth of our first child. When our second son was born, it was a painless childbirth.

When our second son was eight years old, he was wading in a creek near our home and he stepped on a piece of rusty wire. The wire deeply pierced his foot. He came to the house and asked me to pull it out. As I recall, he didn't cry when I extracted it. The thought then came to me, "What shall I do? Shall I apply some material remedy?" This temptation was quickly rejected as I looked at his mother. There was no expression of fear; and she remained calm and assured that the boy would be all right. The foot did not become sore or swell, and our son was able to wear his shoe and walk on his foot. The healing came quickly as a result of our wholehearted turning to God.
