One time our daughter had symptoms of what appeared to be blood poisoning in her foot and leg. As I prayed about this, it came to my attention that this child had been boasting in the neighborhood that other children had to wear shoes to protect their feet, but that she did not have to wear shoes to play in because she was a student in the Christian Science Sunday School. After realizing this, I had a conversation with the child and explained to her that God protects everyone, not just Christian Scientists. The condition disappeared soon after. No medication was used; thought was simply corrected, and the physical evidence of healing followed.

In our family the practice of Christian Science has also healed concussion, high fever, the effects of a severe blow on the neck, attacks of pain and faintness, and measles. Some of these healings came with the help of a Christian Science practitioner, and some came through our own understanding of God.
