My family has experienced many healings, including instantaneous healings of childhood diseases, skin cancer, influenza, convulsions, and scarlet fever. In addition to physical healings, we have, through prayer, received effective help in finding both suitable employment and homes over the years.

My husband is not a Christian Scientist, but he has been supportive of our dependence upon prayer for the healing of myself and our three children. On one occasion our daughter had a rash and high fever. Although I had called a Christian Science practitioner for help through prayer, there didn't seem to be a noticeable change after a day or so, and her father felt a doctor should be called. He diagnosed the condition as scarlet fever and suggested we would be wise not to discuss it with neighbours. No medicine was prescribed, and the practitioner continued to pray for the child; several days later she was completely healed. Around this time our other two children began to show similar symptoms, but they were healed immediately through prayer. I was especially impressed by the doctor, who seemed to realize what fear of a disease can do.
