My parents' first exposure to the healing efficacy of Christian Science...

My parents' first exposure to the healing efficacy of Christian Science came through their healing of depression and intense fear stemming from financial trouble following the Second World War. In addition to the healing of their emotional difficulties, their finances were stabilized. They began attending a local branch church, and I was enrolled as a pupil in the Christian Science Sunday School. Instruction received in the Sunday School and my continued study of Christian Science have been invaluable to me.

There were many healings during my childhood and youth. My mother told me of a healing I had when I was two. One day I fell down the basement steps onto the concrete floor below, striking my head. Mother picked me up, comforted me, and prayed for me, considering deeply "the scientific statement of being" found in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. The statement begins: "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all." Soon I was free, and I experienced no after-effects of the fall.
