From the August 1968 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When I was about seven years old, three doctors gave my father, who was suffering from heart trouble, but a few weeks to live. A kind neighbor introduced my parents to Christian Science. They decided to rely wholeheartedly on it, and my father was healed.

Since then many beautiful healings have resulted through the years for my family and me through the spiritual understanding and application of God's laws.

Late one evening the phone rang, and I was informed by a friend that our eighteen-year-old son had been beaten into unconsciousness by a gang of five boys. Before leaving the house I phoned a Christian Science practitioner and asked for help through prayer. Arriving at the scene of attack, I was told an ambulance had taken the boy to the hospital.
