Family healings and protection during attack

As a child, I experienced several healings through exclusive reliance on Christian Science treatment. They include an immediate healing of a deep cut on my finger, which happened during a camping trip, and of a broken arm, which was perfectly healed within a few days. Experiences such as these led me to take Sunday School seriously. In my classes, where I learned about the nature of God and man, I came to know God as an active presence in my experience, and to understand that my entire being, my real spiritual identity, was my Father-Mother God’s self-expression. The healings reinforced my trust in God, helped me stay out of trouble as a teenager, and gave me something practical to turn to when there were needs. 

For instance, when I was a high-school senior, one night I was in the city with a friend, and a man approached us on the sidewalk. I became aware that this man was agitated when, for no apparent reason, he suddenly drew back his fist to strike me. In the moment of the attack, I recall mentally calling out to God for help.
