My grandmother was presented with Christian Science in the late nineteenth century. I grew up a Christian Scientist and have had many healings. When I was very young, my mother and I both had scarlet fever at the same time, and we were both healed; when the healings came, they came overnight.
I recall how my grandmother's quiet, gentle and prayerful approach to things always brought healing. She lived with us, and it was most natural for my sister and me to accept God's presence, which was clearly felt through her loving practice of Christian Science.
When I was fourteen I had a very deep and continuous cough. One night it was incessant, and my mother prayed for me. She told me later that all of a sudden in her prayer she could understand my perfection; it was so clear to her that I, as a child of God, had never been sick. Instantly the coughing ceased.
