I am blessed to have been a student of Christian Science for as long as I can remember. My mother first learned of Christian Science when she was introduced to it by her landlady. I was three years old at the time. Shortly afterward my fourteen-month-old brother became gravely ill. The doctors diagnosed it as spinal meningitis, and he passed on under medical care. During the time he was hospitalized, my mother had spoken with a Christian Scientist on several occasions, and later talked about how comforted she had been by these conversations. My mother began to study Christian Science in earnest, and enrolled me in Sunday School. Church attendance was a priority in our lives.

Seven years later the family was overjoyed when a new baby was born. When he was not quite two, he suddenly became very ill. A much-publicized polio epidemic was in progress at the time, and there was no doubt that he was suffering with the symptoms of polio. My parents unhesitatingly chose to rely on Christian Science for his care. My mother called for help from a Christian Science practitioner, and was in touch daily for several weeks.
