Shortly before I was born, a neighbor gave my mother a copy of the textbook of Christian Science, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. My parents loved what they read and soon began to attend a branch church. In this book they read, "Individuals are consistent who, watching and praying, can 'run, and not be weary; ... walk, and not faint,' who gain good rapidly and hold their position, or attain slowly and yield not to discouragement."

Through the years there were many challenges, but with their budding understanding of God's love and care for all His creation, my parents did not yield in times of discouragement. While there were physical healings along the way, for which they were most grateful, I recall my mother speaking of two experiences that were especially meaningful to them.

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