I have found that growing up in a family of Christian Scientists can give one a tremendous feeling of dominion and of being loved. I am very grateful to have had this privilege.
As a child, I had the wonderful experience of helping to raise dozens of poodle and cocker puppies, which we sold. A demonstration of Christian Science I remember vividly occurred when at one time we had a new litter of puppies. One pup seemed very weak and then appeared to die. Faced with the problem of explaining what had happened to two puppy-loving little girls (my sister and me), my mom called my dad home from the office. When Dad arrived, he took the cold and apparently lifeless puppy in his hands and prayed. The puppy revived and started moving. Soon it was back with its mother, totally healthy.
At another time, while we were sitting at the dinner table one evening, my sister suddenly complained that she couldn't see out of one eye. My dad took her into another room and began sharing spiritual truths with her. In a very short time her vision was normal. Today my sister doesn't remember specifically what Dad told her, but she does remember feeling immediately comforted when he spoke to her.
