A child thrives again

“A small lad of seven from Wisconsin, who comes from a home where there has been a serious financial struggle, was in great need of healing. . . The anxiety and deprivation in the home were constantly reflected on this one frail member of the family.
“By special arrangement . . . from members of the Christian Science Society where he attends Sunday School, the loving ministrations of the Sanatorium (Star of Bethlehem) were extended to him, and it would gladden your hearts to see how much light and joy has come into that wan little face, in a few weeks.” August 1931 – Star of Bethlehem

A mother and child find refuge

“I was called by my day care provider and told to pick up my four year old son because of their concern about his health,” a mother told the Christian Science nurse when she brought her son to Beacon Haven.
After spending a few hours at the facility with the Christian Science nurses, both the boy and his mother found their needs met by the services and atmosphere at Beacon Haven.
“A couple weeks later my son woke up with sniffles. When I came to him,” his mother said, “he told me,
‘I want to go to the healing place.’”
What a wonderful insight. No one had used this terminology with him.
