Testimonies of Healing

Baby’s quick recovery after a fall

From the June 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Motherhood is proving to be an incredible time for me to learn more about our Father-Mother God and how She cares for me and for all of us. I’ve practiced Christian Science my whole life, and it’s been natural to rely on God for my own health. I remain grateful for the many healings I’ve experienced. As a parent, I’m learning a whole new dimension of what it means to trust God. Every time I look into the beautiful eyes of my happy, healthy baby girl, I am so humbled by God’s care for her and our whole family.

Last fall, when my daughter was about a year old, I nestled her in on the couch for one of her favorite pastimes—looking out the window. I turned away for just a moment, when she managed to roll herself off the couch, hitting her head on the corner of a wooden toy building block. 

I immediately picked her up to comfort and care for her. She was not bleeding, but there was a mark on her forehead that looked as if it could turn into a significant bruise.
