As a child I attended a Christian Science Sunday School but did not rely completely on the teachings of this Science. As a young mother, however, I deeply wanted my children to have only the best, and to me that meant Christian Science. My husband was not a Scientist at that time, though, so when our six-month-old daughter became very ill late one evening, we called a pediatrician.

After examining the baby, he diagnosed the trouble as tonsillitis and told us we should keep a record of the illness because it would recur. Immediately my Sunday School training came back to me. I realized that this baby's true nature was the innocent child of God, His image and likeness, and that I did not have to accept sickness.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
