I would like to relate two healings that our two youngest sons have been involved in, which show how readily they put into practice the truths taught in the Christian Science Sunday School.

About three and a half years ago, I was acting as a chaperone and driving my son and two of his classmates to a farm for a day of learning about farm life. When we were about halfway to our destination, one little boy began to complain that he did not feel well. Everyone in the car began to worry that we would have to turn back and miss the field trip.

I began to declare in my own thought that no inharmony could touch any of God's creation. I turned to my son and said, "We know what to do, don't we?" Without even answering me, he turned to his friend and said: "Do you want me to heal you? I'm a Christian Scientist, you know." The boy replied with an emphatic "Yes!" I don't know how my son prayed, but after several minutes had passed he turned to his friend and asked, "How do you feel now?" The boy's reply came: "I feel fine. I can't wait to get to the farm!" The healing was complete!
