A few months after we were married my husband became seriously ill. We both had attended the Christian Science Sunday School while growing up and knew from experience that this Science could heal disease. Shortly it became necessary to place him in a sanatorium for Christian Scientists. Both of us worked with a Christian Science practitioner and prayed fervently for a fuller spiritual understanding of God and His idea, man.

Many obstacles presented themselves, forcing me to grow. In-law relationships required more kindness. Nursing care required humility. Continuing to love required spiritual vision. And patience in the face of this challenge required selflessness. Not every step came graciously, but the more I let go of human will and planning, the more I saw trust and expectancy grow. Working daily with the Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly brought incalculable good. We could feel and see the changes.
