In the Christian Science movement, organized and established under the inspired leadership of the Discoverer of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, I have found loving provision made for every step of the progress which follows naturally and necessarily a student's acceptance and application of the truth. I have taken these steps as they unfolded, and have been unspeakably blessed in doing so. A glorious day began to dawn for me with the first proof I had that God heals the sick through Christian Science. Later, I came to know that God leads "in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake," and that righteousness is always lovely and greatly to be desired.

Through the daily study of the Lesson-Sermons, as outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly, I began to learn and to love the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and found that my whole outlook was being transformed. The first slight understanding I had that "the truth is the centre of all religion" (Science and Health, p. 20), as Mrs. Eddy beautifully expresses it, brought my first appreciation of the work of the churches throughout the ages.

The Christian Science Journal, Christian Science Sentinel, and The Christian Science Monitor have been as the angels of God's presence to me, instructing, inspiring, and healing. Membership in a branch church, followed by acceptance as a member of The Mother Church, and service for the Cause as a worker in a branch church, have brought responsibilities and blessings. Crowning all has been the privilege of class instruction, whereby I have learned more concerning the "weapons of our warfare," which are "mighty through God."
