Skin problem healed, financial needs met

When our two children were under the age of three, our family moved to a large city to pursue a job offer that was promised to my husband. After two months, it was evident that this job was not what had been promised. Our financial needs became dire, as our bills accumulated. I was very fearful and worried.

One morning, I noticed that our two children were covered in dime-sized spots. They were not in pain and there was no irritation. By that afternoon, I, too, had these spots. I didn’t know any Christian Scientists in the area, so I opened a Christian Science Journal and found a practitioner in our city. I called her and told her of the physical conditions.

I won’t ever forget her first words to me. “My dear, this is nothing but a belief of poverty, lack, and depletion!” I was dumbstruck and wondered how she knew of our financial situation, which I hadn’t mentioned. She spoke lovingly to me of God’s goodness and of His all-encompassing, ever-present love for His creation, man. It dawned on me that our bodies are innocent; they merely display what mortal mind is portraying in thought. I don’t remember what else the practitioner said, except that she agreed to pray for me. All I felt was hope, assurance, and joy.
