We were introduced to Christian Science during the economic depression of the 1930's, when a neighbor, seeing our great need, invited my husband and me to attend a Christian Science lecture. This was a couple of months before our second child was born, and we had many problems of illness, lack, unemployment, and unhappiness. I don't remember much about the lecture, although I still remember the love expressed that night. Nevertheless, it was several years before we took up the study of Christian Science seriously and practiced it for ourselves.

About three months after we had attended the lecture my husband, who was then employed as a pilot, was cranking an old-type airplane when a student at the controls misunderstood some signals. As a result my husband's right hand was mangled. For some time the doctors thought they would have to amputate, but my husband refused to consider this course of action.

We'd love to hear from you!
