Children healed of auto accident injuries

From the November 2001 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Caroline Horstman-Hochstatter and her husband, , live in Scottsdale, Arizona, with their three children, Elmarie, 14, Mimi, 8, and Willy, 5. Both Caroline's and Leland's families heard about Christian Science two generations ago. In Caroline's family, a neighbor learned about Caroline's great aunt's crying and asked if she could help. The aunt poured her heart out, telling of her husband's recent diagnosis of a heart condition that was forcing him to quit his job. The neighbor offered her a little book—Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures—which the aunt read and shared with her husband. A full recovery followed, and the family embraced Christian Science as a result.

Leland's grandparents also began studying Christian Science after a dramatic healing. As a wife and mother of seven, the grandmother was at the point of passing on following a chronic illness. Panicked, her husband ran out into the street, where he found a nurse, whom he begged to come help. The nurse was a Christian Science nurse. She went into the house and prayed with the woman, who was fully healed.

Against this background of generations of spiritual healing, it's not surprising that Caroline and her husband turned to God, following a car accident involving their three children and a babysitter, Fely, who has lived with the family for nine years. Caroline, marketing research manager for the air freshener division of Dial Soap Corporation, told the Journal about this experience.
