My parents became interested in Christian Science when I was a small child, and for over fifty years God has been my sole physician. I could recount many wonderful healings that have occurred during this period.

When I was growing up, diseases often associated with childhood were healed through study and prayer in Christian Science. I recall having been sent home from school one morning by the school nurse, who said I had mumps. A Christian Science practitioner was requested to pray for me, and I was healed and allowed to return to school the same day.

While I was in college, one day I struggled to open a stuck door. When the door finally yielded, my hand went through the glass; I received a deep cut. The glass appeared to have cut an artery. The person with me was quite concerned and wanted to call a doctor. I assured her I was fine and asked for a cloth to tie around my arm. Then I called a Christian Science practitioner, who prayed for me. Immediately the bleeding stopped, and I was healed.
