A lifetime of healing

Health, protection, and abundant happiness have been some of the rewards reaped from my study of Christian Science. 

When I was a young child, my health was frail and I was under almost constant care by physicians. I was frequently home from school with one childhood disease or another. I also took treatments for sinus trouble. Finally, in my seventh year, our compassionate doctor advised my parents that they must take me south, away from the cold climate of Detroit, or I might not survive the winter. So my dear parents sacrificed a great deal to do this, and I was taken to Florida. However, my health remained the same.

All through this early experience, I knew God could, and would, heal me. My sister and I had been enrolled in the Christian Science Sunday School from the age of three years, and I had learned enough about God to be convinced that He loved me and wanted me to be well. Though I continually questioned the use of material healing methods, my father, who was not a Christian Scientist, insisted on medical treatment for me.
