Doctors said "mastoid" and said must operate at once but marveled my year old daughter had no fears. I said "The presence of God in you is your health and wholeness." I realized it and on the third day saw the appearance disappear.

My seven year old son came home from school and said "mother, what's mumps? The nurse says I have mumps." "Its nothing, son," I answered. "We believe in the presence of God, our health." Together we realized his health. Four hours later the health officer came to put up a sign and upon examination sputtered at the nurse's mistake. No sign put up and the boy went back to school. We had realized health for all the children and two days later the newspapers announced a sudden abatement in this disease for which the doctors could not account.

One of my most thrilling moments was when I realized I could do something about it. I did not need to die with tuberculosis. Nine months later I was pronounced "healed." This message was given me "Let the weak say, I am strong."
