When I was about thirteen years of age I spent most of the summer in bed with typhoid fever. When the doctor's efforts failed to cure me, my mother, who had heard of Christian Science, dismissed the doctor and sent for a Christian Science practitioner. The practitioner visited our home and prayed for me. The next day I got up out of bed, sat at the table, and ate a hearty meal. I was well. I didn't take up the study of Christian Science at the time of that healing, but I always held in my heart a prayer to be as good as the practitioner was.

Years later, after I had married, our daughter was born with a disjointed foot. Then, when she was two months old, the child developed pneumonia. As my mother had done years before when medical help had proved inadequate, I sent for a Christian Science practitioner. The practitioner prayed for our daughter, and that day the child was healed of the pneumonia as well as of the disjointed foot. The healing of her foot was so complete that later I couldn't even remember which foot had been affected.
