Podcast: 5-year-old’s healing inspires parents

Alma, Dear Nurse, Podcast image 001

“…and a little child shall lead them.” Isaiah 11:6

And so it was with Matthew Clark and his wife when their five-year-old daughter, Alma, was dealing with the results of an accident.

Listen to Matthew Clark share his gratitude for his daughter’s calm and joy and for the BA’s outpatient service. 

When we got to the Benevolent Association, a Christian Science nurse was right there to very gently and carefully clean a difficult wound and bandage us up and give us Christian Science support as well. And the entire time Alma was just happy to be there.

Sharing her gratitude for the Christian Science nurses’ care, Alma wrote the thank-you note shown here.

    What a profound sharing of family growth and healing!
    When my son was not quite five, he had an aggressive rash.
    I was a new student of Christian Science but my husband
    was a life-long student. We chose to take our son to
    High Ridge House in Riverdale, NY as an out patient.
    Like the experience you shared, we were met with tender,
    competent, practical care for our son which dissolved
    my fear. I then could take on the simple cleansing care
    required. With the practitioner’s support the healing came
    quickly. Don’s arm was covered with long sleeves through
    the process, so he could continue his school attendance.
    It was a landmark experience for me in trusting
    Christian Science healing. As a young man, our son
    took nurse’s aide training at Tenacre, in Princeton, NJ.
    As a grown man he gives loving care to his dad when
    it is helpful. What a powerful circle of Love!
