Christian Science was presented to my mother before I was born, after the passing of her four-and-a-half-year-old son. A woman gave my mother a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy to comfort her.
Later, when I was two, I suffered from some malady unknown to the doctors who treated me. After they had done all they could and I still lay listless and ill, my mother decided to call a Christian Science practitioner for prayerful help. I have been told that within an hour I was up and playing, completely healed.
I am unspeakably grateful that my dear mother accepted Christian Science, so lovingly offered her in time of need.
