(Minghui.org) I don’t have fond memories of my childhood. My dad had terrible migraine headaches. My mom had a herniated disc and heart disease. We had a lot of medicine in our house. My parents always fought with each other. Due to their cold war, I never saw my parents enjoying each others’ company.

Everything changed after my parents started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995. Their health problems were gone and they no longer needed medication. Peace and laughter filled our house. I was happy to see that they were stepping onto a spiritual path.

I learned from their cultivation experiences. They got up early every morning to do the Falun Dafa exercises, except for the time when dad was imprisoned due to the persecution. I admired their persistence. Despite the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) slander and persecution, my parents stood firm in their beliefs. They never wavered under pressure. I’m so proud of their bravery.

They never forget to clarify the truth about the persecution to others, even when they were being persecuted. Their efforts brought a bright future to many people. How fortunate I am to live with two compassionate cultivators!

Our Whole Family Benefits from Falun Dafa

My parents lived with us after I got married. My mom took care of us and our two sons. Because of her cultivation practice, she has great health and compassion. My dad unselfishly helped us financially. My husband and I couldn’t have had our successful careers without my parents.

My sons grew up listening to Master Li’s (Dafa’s founder) lectures and reading Minghui Weekly. My older son is now in middle school. He has been healthy since he was a baby and hasn’t taken any medicine. Every time he had some discomfort, we sent forth righteous thoughts for him, and he was fine. Mom started teaching him how to read Zhuan Falun when he was four. Although his school work got heavier as he got older, he still reads the Fa every day. Everyone who meets him says he is polite and has great self-restraint. Sometimes I discuss my cultivation tests with my older son because he has a good understanding of the Fa and puts others first.

Even though I was older when I was pregnant with my second child, I didn’t have any health problems. I thought of Falun Dafa and Master during my painful labor, and my younger son was born smoothly. I wasn’t worried even though I had excessive bleeding later, because I knew I would be fine. My younger son is healthy, happy, and smart. He copies grandma and pays his respect to Master.

Master Has Taken Care of Us

Master started taking care of me even before I began practicing Falun Dafa. At first, I occasionally read Zhuan Falun and listened to his lectures. I learned not to fight for fame and fortune. Even though my scores on the national college entrance exam were high enough for me to enter one of the superior colleges, I ended up going to a college in my hometown. It dawned on me later that Master arranged for me to stay in my hometown so that I wouldn’t be moved along the degenerated climate in society.

Everything after my graduation, including my job search, promotion, marriage, and buying an apartment, went smoothly as if they had been arranged ahead of time. My mother-in-law also practices Falun Dafa. My husband and I hadn’t started practicing yet, but our families shared the same belief and laid a great foundation for us. I know that Master compassionately took care of us so that we wouldn’t get lost in the pursuit of worldly things.

No language can describe the beauty of cultivation that I experienced. I always had no compromise whenever I argued with my husband before. Cultivation made me see my problem, and I became considerate and grateful. Our family life is filled with bright sunshine.

My husband has also grown up under the influence of Falun Dafa. He is a great employee at work and a responsible citizen in society. His work involves control of financial accounts but he has a great conscience and never made any decisions based on his personal interests. He fearlessly stopped the authorities of our residential community from harassing us at home. He strongly believes that Falun Dafa is great.

I had a rebellious personality when I was a child. After mom and I quarreled, both of us ended up crying. After I started cultivating myself, I regretted hurting mom’s feelings. I used to complain that her way of parenting was too forceful. Now I realize that I was selfish and did not understand how much she sacrificed for me. We don’t quarrel anymore, and we look at the situation from each other’s perspective when we have different opinions.

My dad was imprisoned twice due to the persecution. I complained that he wasn’t rational. When he was imprisoned the second time, I realized that he hadn’t done anything wrong. He simply told people how wonderful Falun Dafa was so that they wouldn’t be deceived by the CCP’s lies and would be able to choose a bright future for themselves. It was out of his great compassion. When I discussed it with my relatives, they remembered the many good deeds dad did for our family and changed their negative opinions.

Falun Dafa Benefits My Extended Family

My uncles and aunts talk to my mom when they had difficulties in their lives. My mom always told them to sincerely recite the two phrases, “Falun Dafa is great. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is great.” Things amazingly turned in the right direction.

My aunt’s mother-in-law was once diagnosed with osteonecrosis of the femoral head. Her doctor told her that she needed two major surgeries, but she was afraid of the pain. My mom visited her and told her to keep reciting the two phrases. She followed her mom’s advice and even listened to recordings of Master’s lectures. Her osteonecrosis was gone afterward. She was fine without any surgery.

My uncle is stubborn. He used to believe in the Communist Party and refused to quit any CCP organizations he joined. He was later diagnosed with heart disease. His doctor told him that he needed a stent, but he couldn’t afford to pay for the surgery. Mom talked to him during a family gathering. He was eventually willing to listen to the truth about Falun Dafa and agreed to quit all the Communist organizations. After he repeatedly recited the two phrases, he recovered quickly and didn’t need surgery. The next time he saw her, he asked mom to give him an amulet.

As Master wrote,

“The followers of Dafa are messengers divineWho suffer bravely so that you may have hope” (“I Sing Now of the Truth,” Hong Yin V)

Hundreds of millions of people have benefited from Falun Dafa since it was introduced to the public in 1992. I hope more people will learn about Dafa and know this group of great people.
