Over a period of years, I have felt great gratitude for the truths of Christian Science given us in the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I did not come into Christian Science for healing but rather out of curiosity. Before my marriage I had met people who expressed so much joy and love that I just had to find out why they always seemed so happy. Plenty of good came their way. They had sound health, meaningful jobs, and expressed fearlessness in all their activities. Often I found that these individuals were studying Christian Science.

After my marriage I learned that my husband's mother and sister were students of this Science. From time to time they gave me articles on Christian Science and copies of the Sentinel. They also shared spiritual truths that helped me in raising my children. I finally bought a copy of Science and Health and began to study too. The children were enrolled in the local Christian Science Sunday School.

One of the first healings we experienced occurred when our son became ill. The pupils in his room at school had been quarantined because one of the children in the first grade had scarlet fever. Shortly our son began to manifest some of the symptoms of that disease. I called a Christian Science practitioner for help. The boy asked me to read the Beatitudes from Christ Jesus' Sermon on the Mount to him (see Matt. 5:3-12); before I had finished he was asleep. When he woke he was completely free of fever and sore throat. Not only was he blessed by this healing, but there was beautiful evidence of protection, as no one in his room at school became ill. Our gratitude for this proof of the healing power of Truth was great.
