Sweet feet

FEET ARE pretty important—Biblically speaking. We discovered this one day last winter. During gym class, our sixth-grade daughter, Elizabeth, had landed on one of her ankles pretty hard and sprained it. It was the same ankle she had sprained a couple of years before.

Having always seen prayer used for our family's healthcare needs, Elizabeth was used to our instructions to ask for our help praying if she needed it. So she had done that. She was praying as well. Her coach, aware that she chooses Christian Science care for sickness or injuries, also spoke briefly with us on the phone. We know him pretty well, and he showed his usual kindness and openness toward our prayer-based approach to healthcare. But he did convey to us his specific concerns that the swelling needed to be reduced and that with ankle sprains, it is common for the injury to keep recurring.

We'd love to hear from you!
