Still in the family

My family has studied Christian Science for five generations. Some of the healings we've had have been outstanding. All through the years our family has read the Holy Bible, and Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and prayed every day. This study and prayer has helped us meet challenges with less fear—in fact, many times without fear. We've learned to turn quickly to recognize the power and omnipresence of God and to see man as reflecting that governing power.

Prayer was a powerful help for our family in a particularly troublesome situation. How do you respond when an academic achiever, an award winner in swimming, leaves home, drops out of high school, moves from one place to another, eventually resides in a garage, and goes to extremes to get money to support his drug habit? When this downhill slide occurred with my grandson, family members fervently prayed. And instead of writing him off, we were open to opportunities to let him know he was still part of the family and so loved by us.
