Healing in my family

It has been more than 60 years since my dad left the church he grew up in, in search of a clearer concept of God. He found his answer just a block away—at a Church of Christ, Scientist. Although he wasn’t specifically seeking physical health, a wonderful side effect of his newfound way of life was a complete healing of double curvature of the spine and crippling arthritis, as well as a smoking addiction and quick temper (see Sentinel, May 23, 1959, p. 913). He and mom were so eager to practice what they were learning about God that they decided to have a third child (me!) and teach and share this new understanding they were gaining of a loving, ever-present, omnipotent Father-Mother God.

I’ve had many proofs of God’s care while growing up—from protection and quick healing of children’s diseases, to injuries incurred as an athletic, adventurous tomboy.
