I am continually grateful that my parents took up the study of Christian Science when I was a child, because at one point I was injured in a streetcar accident. Afterward I was taken to the hospital where my mother was told that nothing could be done for me. She then called a Christian Science practitioner; very shortly I regained consciousness, and my mother took me home. Full healing was soon evident.

In the succeeding years I have had innumerable healings. There have been many physical healings and evidences of protection, including four instances of painless childbirth, demonstrations of supply, and business transactions completed harmoniously. For all these forward steps I am very grateful.

Several years ago, bicycles belonging to my son and one of his friends were stolen. The father of the friend was a deputy sheriff, so we left the case in his hands. But there were no immediate developments. Days later, as I was sitting in the car after church waiting for the children to come from Sunday School, the thought came: "What can I do about this problem?" I really was asking for divine guidance. So I started mentally listing all the proofs of God's care I could think of that had come to us, being grateful for each spiritual lesson learned. Surely I was ready and able to handle this bicycle situation.
